Plug And Play, a well regarded technology incubator from Silicon Valley has announced a new cohort of Sustainability start ups that they will guide through their process. They help run innovation programs for corporates and accelerator programs for startups, across a suite of industries, including energy. You might recognize some of the small brands that they’ve nurtured — GooglePayPal, and Dropbox.
