Startups converge for accelerator aimed at growing cleantech corridor in NC

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – One startup has designed a food management platform to curb waste and combat hunger. Another has developed technology to reduce water consumption through evaporative cooling. And yet another provides software for utilities to perform real-time water quality monitoring.

These are among the innovative solutions to be honed and tested as part of the Joules Accelerator program.

In total, eight early-stage companies from around the country will be taking part, visiting Charlotte and the Research Triangle from March 20-22. It’s the accelerator’s sixth year running, but the first time it has partnered with the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster (RTCC), a consortium of the Research Triangle’s government, academia, and industry leaders.

The goal: to launch a “cleantech corridor” that will tap into the strengths of the region between Charlotte and the Research Triangle to promote local expansion, relocation and project deployment for emerging technology companies.
