Sylvatex Wins Spot in Greenstart Accelerator
It's official: Sylvatex is one of only four startups chosen for Greenstart, an innovative cleantech startup accelerator program based in San Francisco.
From a field of 129 applicants, Sylvatex was chosen for its ground-breaking Intellectual Property, well-rounded management team, and low capital requirements (i.e. Sylvatex does not require capital-intensive construction in order to succeed).
In addition to an infusion of seed funding, during the course of the three month program, Greenstart will provide Sylvatex with a host of resources and tools. Benefits include office space, mentorship, legal counsel, grant writing assistance, web support, networking opportunities, and prototyping & test space.
Greenstart's ribbon-cutting ceremony drew a tremendous amount of press, and as a result, Sylvatex has been featured in a number of prominent tech and business publications, from the New York Times and SFGate to Fast Company, CNet, and GigaOM. More coverage here and here as well.
