2019 MIT Startup Exchange Workshop: Sustainable Materials Innovation
December 3, 2019
MIT Startup Exchange presents its December Startup Workshop, centered around sustainable materials innovation. MIT Startup Exchange works to help create partnerships between over 1,800 MIT-connected startups and industry, represented by MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) members. Today, there is a large and growing societal interest for greater sustainability in the material systems that provide for a modern life style. The call is across all industry sectors, and includes the entire value chain including raw materials, material processing, material uses, and end-of-cycle treatment/reuse. This represents a challenge and an opportunity for companies, and many MIT startups are developing and providing innovative technology and business model solutions. This workshop will present perspectives from industry leaders, academics, and corporate investors, while showcasing several MIT-connected startups in this field.
P&G aims to accelerate their innovation outcomes around sustainability that will improve life for generations to come.
Looking for 8-10 Startups to present their technology on Sept 20 in the field of Sustainability and its many arms. Participation will entail short Startup Lightning Talks and Lunch Exhibit.
W.L. Gore & Associates has recently launched a Sustainability Initiative to explore business opportunities that will create a more sustainable future. They are interested in meeting and exploring ideas to work together with startups that have created innovative material technologies that fit the theme of a sustainable future across a broad range of application areas. In particular, they are seeking new material advancements in cleantech (such as membranes), catalysis, separations and biofabrication.
P&G Latin America has a common objective of driving an innovation mindset to solve the most important business challenges related to sustainability.

At P&G we recently announced our ambition to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across our supply chain and operations by 2040, from raw material to retailer.
Sustainability is a broad and popular topic. Renewable energy; energy transition; recycling and the circular economy; climate and environment; water and food – these topics are quickly maturing into fields of their own. But what is next for sustainability? What lies beyond what we now consider sustainable technologies and business practices, and how will they affect your industry? What does emerging government policy suggest will be the hot sustainability topics of the future? Join MIT faculty, researchers, and startups as we review core topics like energy and climate, but also explore new ones, like digital sustainability, sustainability for the built environment, and how we teach sustainability – both to the workforce of the present and the workforce of the future.
