The common goal of Greentown Labs and InnovationQuarter is to set up a reciprocal program that enables entrepreneurs and innovators in the cleantech space to gain acces to the Boston and Dutch markets. This soft landing program will assist growth-stage cleantech ventures with market expansion through partnerships and funding opportunities in Boston and the Netherlands.
Emily Reichert, CEO, Greentown Labs: “Last year I had the opportunity to visit The Netherlands and I was so impressed by the quality of the buzzing cleantech ecosystem in the Rotterdam and Delft areas with initiatives like PortXL, Yes!Delft, RDM and CIC leading the charge. I was encouraged by how similar our ecosystems are and the commitment all of our startups have made to solving big energy and environmental challenges.”
We know that by building a bridge between our two communities we will help facilitate global expansion and new market entry for entrepreneurs in both countries. – Emily Reichert, CEO, Greentown Labs
Rinke Zonneveld: “I am extremily excited about this cooperation with the largest cleantech incubator in the US. I am convinced that Greentown Labs will be the perfect stepping stone for our cleantech companies which are ready to conquer the American market. Of course we are equally thrilled to welcome many Boston based cleantech ventures to our region.”
