On Feb. 20 CSI held Demo Night to mark the end of the first round of CSI’s Agents of Change: Climate Solutions accelerator. 19 social enterprises graduated out of the program, as applications closed for 20 new startups to join our one-year accelerator.

170 people were in attendance, and they voted Ripple Farms the best pitch of the night. The Agents also voted for their peer who most contributed to the program and to helping others grow, and Peggy Sue Collection took home that prize.

Both Ripple Farms and Peggy Sue Collection won a year’s worth of workspace at CSI, and Ripple Farms brought home a $1,500 cash prize. For more information on the Agents out this blog post with some updates from the 2017-18 cohort, and stay tuned as we’ll announce the new cohort in a month!
