Congratulations to one of our Clean Tech CEO Crash Course participants, Tzvi Weber.  He just won $1000 from the regional StartUp Challenge.  That Challenge brought together 11 innovative teams, split into two cohorts: Catalyst and Traction. The Traction Cohort showcased companies already with a work product, with Tzvi’s company Purpuratus, emerging as the first-place winner.  Purpuratus stood out for its pioneering approach in making kelp restoration profitable by repurposing invasive Urchin shells from California’s coast into clothing dyes and calcium citrate. Tzvi credits in part the Crash Course for helping make a compelling case for his innovation.
