Strengthening the regional GreenTech community
Understanding the scale and importance of this work, we don't undertake the challenge alone. The most powerful force for change lies in our partnership with others. We are connecting the key startup and GreenTech community in the region.
We created Future Hub with three main goals in mind, all equally important and relevant to us. First, to support GreenTech startup development and market access and to enable open innovation among market-leading enterprises. Second, to empower greener and more sustainable practices and mindset. Businesses have more than the responsibility to be sustainable; they also have the opportunity and power to impact cities, communities, and individuals by helping them live green. The third goal, and also the subject of this particular article, is to strengthen the regional GreenTech community as the most powerful force for change lies in our partnership with others.
It's been almost overwhelming to experience the community member's willingness to join. We cannot wait to kick-off the program on March 8 and see the community's power take full force. What does it mean to be a community member, you might wonder. Practically, it means having access to Future Hub content (weekly workshops, fireside chats), joining our Slack to be able to directly reach out to any other member or startup, joining the program as mentors in some cases, and spreading the word and educating a wider audience about sustainability challenges and the potential the GreenTech solutions have.
