WAYS TO ENGAGE
Our 3-year grant will allow us to build a 'cleantech corridor' between the Charlotte and Research Triangle regions by:
- Expanding an accelerator program to help entrepreneurs access North Carolina markets and advisors
- Engaging stakeholders to identify regional 'pain points' and opportunities to deploy cleantech solutions locally
- Developing the region's cleantech ecosystem through events, marketing, and strategic connections
RTCC and Joules are bringing together the region's municipalities, universities, and industry for the first time - and now's the time to get involved. We're looking for municipal leaders who want to pilot technologies in their communities (large or small), visionaries interested in collaborating on a cleantech vision for North Carolina, startups seeking to deploy in North Carolina, industry members interested in mentoring startups, and more. Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved.
