Taste the flavor of VERGE 16, in tweets

VERGE Accelerate winner announced onstage
At the VERGE Accelerate startup pitch competition, Evernu won day one for recycling garment fiber to create a fabric its CEO Stacy Flynn calls "finer than silk, stronger than cotton."

Execs from some of the world's largest companies joined venture capitalists, startup hopefuls, pundits, nonprofit activists, storytellers and policymakers in Silicon Valley this week for the GreenBiz VERGE 16 confab. Here are the highlights compiled à la Twittersphere.

If you can't make it to the show in person, you can still catch the livestream Wednesday and Thursday mornings on our home page. (Register here.) You'll find new tweets at our GreenBiz account and at the #VERGECon hashtag.
