We are excited to share the list of companies joining AB InBev’s 100+ Sustainability Accelerator cohort in 2020.
The selected startups come from 13 different countries and this year’s program received over 1200+ applications globally, double the amount of applications in its inaugural cohort. Startups applied to tackle six sustainability challenges: climate action, circular packaging, water stewardship, smart farming, smart drinking, and upcycling solutions.
These companies work with AB InBev globally, over the next 6 months to pilot and scale their new technology solutions. The teams will also receive mentorship, industry connections, training, and up to $100,000 for pilot execution, with the possibility of additional investment from AB InBev and its partners.
