During the mission we offer European cleantech innovators the opportunity to learn about the American market and its opportunities, make relevant connections and introduce their technology to local players. Besides local site visits and networking opportunities, two events make this mission of particular value for startups and scaleups in the fields of energy systems and sustainable building.
This mission marks the arrival of the Clipper Stad Amsterdam, a historic sailing ship, in Boston. The ship travels along the East Coast of the US as a first step in a multi-year program in which we exchange knowledge, innovate and do business together, and work towards a sustainable future.
A Meet-the-Buyer event offers you the opportunity to get in touch with leading enterprises in the energy systems and/or sustainable building sector, such as GE, St. Gobain and Tokyo Gas. The event will give you the chance to have individual one-on-one meetings with key decision makers in these sectors. By establishing valuable collaborations, pitching your products and services, and discussing business partnerships this event can boost your company’s growth. You will also have the opportunity to mix with the network at Greentown Labs.
The City of Boston is a frontrunner in the US when it comes to preparing for the impact of climate change and lowering carbon emissions. The city has been named the most energy efficient city in the US four years running and won the Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge in 2018.
For Dutch companies who decide to combine participating in this mission with the BOSteRDAM program a discount will be applied.
