This is our challenge. This is our chance.
For over 100 years, Black & Veatch has been a leader in the design and construction of sustainable infrastructure. Today, we recognize that climate change represents perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced…and presents one of the great opportunities for innovation in our history.
Through this year’s IgniteX Program, we’ve solicited proposals from bold, leading-edge thinkers and partners for technologies that promise to accelerate the development of decarbonization solutions.
What is the IgniteX Program?
IgniteX is a 12-week virtual program designed to partner with start-ups offering scalable solutions for critical human infrastructure. Program participants are partnered with Black & Veatch experts to co-develop, pilot, and/or market their new technology. Solutions partners receive opportunities for mentorship, access to our vast network, product testing, pitch development, investor introductions and funding up to $50,000. Previous years’ programs have focused on cleantech and pandemic response.
The results are in!
We are excited to announce the eight startups to make this year’s IgniteX Climate Tech Accelerator. Learn more about these innovators and sign up for information on Demo Day. Learn More
