Having helped nearly 110 start-ups raise over $200 million since its launch in 2011, Greentown Labs in Somerville, MA, has figured out how to build successful clean technology companies.

How exactly did a small community of start-ups became the largest clean technology incubator in the U.S. and so valuable for the companies it serves?

Find out over breakfast on Thursday, July 13, 2017, at the Technology Innovation Centre.

Our gathering will feature Sam Jackson, director of operations at Greentown Labs. Whether you’re a clean technology entrepreneur or an enthusiast in the industry, you’ll get plenty of tips about what it takes to run a thriving clean technology start-up. Sam will also share how Greentown Labs’ success could be modelled here in Nova Scotia.

Sam Jackson, Director of Operations, Greentown Labs (greentownlabs.com) – Sam joined Greentown Labs in 2015 after 15 years with the U.S. Coast Guard.

Sam’s operations team takes care of the facility and its resources, most notably the machine shop, electrical test equipment, software, 3D printer, copy machine, electrical service, security, and the two things Greentown Labs could not run without: coffee and the internet.
