Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2), in a partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, selected five start up companies whose focus is on sustainable crop production to receive up to $250,000 in non-dilutive funding and hands-on technical assistance to further develop and validate their technologies. IN2 recently expanded their charter to include agricultural production in order to speed the development and commercialization of technologies that help the agriculture sector implement sustainable farming solutions.

Trish Cozart, IN2 program manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, said, “We are very excited to be working with the Danforth center to test and validate our next cohort of companies. Looking at how our food, water and energy resources can be used more efficiently and effectively is a big part of the mission of this program. We look forward to working with these companies and the Danforth center in addressing that challenge.”
