NEIA announces partnership with Common Ground Coworking to support clean technology entrepreneurs and startups

Members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) now have special access to discounted coworking and boardroom space at Common Ground Coworking through a new collaboration between the two organizations.

NEIA is marking its 25th Anniversary Celebrations with a new mandate to support entrepreneurs and start-ups within the sector. “There has been a strong focus across the country on the development and adoption of clean technologies – with the view that these activities could be a significant contributor to Canada’s climate change and environmental objectives,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “We believe that the challenges faced reconciling economic and environmental interests is capturing the imagination of entrepreneurs across the province.”

Hanley says that he expects that this growing interest and demand will result in new businesses offering new clean technology products and services. “Coworking is an excellent option for startups; it allows entrepreneurs to share ideas and experiences, and encourages collaboration and innovation. We are excited to be able to support the cleantech startup community through this partnership.”

Common Ground is St. John’s first coworking space, offering individuals and small teams an inspiring place to work and collaborate and access to professional boardroom facilities and amenities. For more information on the NEIA / Common Ground partnership, click here.

This agreement continues NEIA’s drive to expand its support for entrepreneurs and startups, building on a partnership established with the Genesis Centre in October, and new focus on startups and their founders at its annual Newleef conference.

NEIA is a not-for-profit association of businesses that promotes the development of clean technology and the growth of the green economy in Newfoundland and Labrador. NEIA has over 200 members. More information can be found at www.neia.org.
