Since Georgia-Pacific’s 1915 Studios launch in collaboration with startup accelerator gener8tor in 2021, three cohorts of early-stage startups have capitalized on the resources available through the free, 12-week accelerator program housed within G-P’s Neenah Technical Center. And the fourth is currently underway at 1915 Marathon Avenue. There, early-stage startups have access to a hub of idea-generation, product development, technology and creative resources.
As of early 2023, a total of 13 startup companies have graduated from the program. The common denominator among the startups: a focus on innovative sustainability solutions.
Take Celcy, for example, whose CEO and co-founder Max Wieder heard about the opportunity to participate in a 1915 Studios cohort after reaching out to gener8tor. Although he had tapped into other accelerators, 1915 Studios stood apart in terms of resources and opportunities for tangible outcomes.
