"In coming to Houston, Greentown Houston will serve as an on-the-ground catalyst for the energy transition in the city—aiming to bring together civic and business leaders, entrepreneurs, students, community members, and other stakeholders who have already begun the transition and raise awareness of the opportunity for those who have yet to engage," Greentown Labs said
"Greentown Labs announced its first-ever national expansion to Houston in June 2020, with the intention of broadening its impact and accelerating the energy transition through entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration. Greentown Labs is the largest climatetech incubator in North America, headquartered in Somerville, Mass., just outside of Boston," Greentown Labs said
