In a international breakfast meeting with British Columbia Premier John Horgan, the CleanTech Alliance and Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre took a big step towards international cleantech cooperation, hetwo organizations have signed a memorandum of understanding. Jeanette Jackson, Managing Partner, Foresight, and Tom Ranken, President, CleanTech Alliance pledged to work together whenever possible to support one another in our joint goal of hastening the adoption of clean technologies throughout the region and the world.
The CleanTech Alliance and Foresight have agreed to three focal areas of cooperation. Firstly, we will work to advance cross border collaboration and partnerships in the cleantech sector. Secondly, we will explore opportunities to advance joint cleantech research and business development across the region. Finally, The CleanTech Alliance and Foresight will work together on programming, events, outreach, and more, in order find and create collaborative partnerships that will lead to a cleaner world. Together, we have promised to take steps toward creating this greener world by creating better access to cleantech resources, improving cross border collaboration on energy research, and cooperating to speed clean technology from the labs to the marketplace.
“There is no substitute in business for the power of just getting the right players in the right room at the same time,” says CleanTech Alliance Tom Ranken. “With work and cooperation, this moves in the right direction at the right time.”
So, to our Canadian members and allies, be on the lookout for the CleanTech Alliance at coming events like Foresight TAP program, and to our American friends, please welcome Foresight at our own events.
