AB InBev’s 100+ Sustainability Accelerator names 17 startups accepted into its 2020 cohort



We are excited to share the list of companies joining AB InBev’s 100+ Sustainability Accelerator  cohort in 2020. 


The selected startups come from 13 different countries and this year’s program received over 1200+ applications globally, double the amount of applications in its inaugural cohort.
