Ecovative Returns to Davos

This week, Ecovative will be returning to World Economic Forum in Davos as a Technology Pioneer. Our CEO, Eben Bayer, will once again be braving the icy slopes and treacherous funiculars of Davos-Kloster to bring Ecovative’s perspective on environmentally responsible technologies and actions to the forum. As you may remember, last year Ecovative “won” the somewhat fanciful “Coolest Startup” award. This year, we have an even more exciting announcement to make during the event, in true Davos Fashion. (We will still try for a double on coolest start up) For all the latest on conference follow @ecovative and @ebenbayer on twitter.

Funicular – fu·nic·u·lar – noun: A fun train to ride up and down steep slopes
