Tufts Partners with the World's Largest Cleantech Incubator
Through this partnership, Greentown Labs and Tufts University will share their collective expertise, resources, and networks to collaborate with a host local startup companies.
Greentown Labs provides co-working space for the development of projects focused on renewable power, sustainable transportation, battery storage, industrial waste recycling, and a variety of other focus areas.
“We’re elevating the vision of cleantech.”
“The Tufts/Greentown partnership is powerful because it connects idea generators and new technologies from a great research university to the ecosystem of a world-class cleantech incubator. It opens up all kinds of opportunities for Tufts students and faculty, and enables opportunities to go from the lab to the marketplace.” – Dr. Barbara Kates-Garnick, Professor of Practice at the Fletcher School at Tufts University and TIE-Greentown Advisory Committee member.
