Mark Tercek of The Nature Conservancy says the effort will identify “potential technology breakthroughs that will accelerate protection of nature at scale,” particularly in food production and water use.

Last month, Techstars announced the launch its first impact acceleration program, focusing on social startups in financial services, healthcare, education, agriculture and energy.

The Sustainability Accelerator plans to enroll 30 startups over three years. Applications open in January for the July program.
