What’s it all about?
One of the things that drives me most is helping cleantech founders and start-ups to scale and bring great products and solutions to the world. I do this through the Hyperion Executive Search team, through mentoring for accelerators and incubators like Plug & Play, and Foresight Cananda, and through this podcast. This week I’m keen to share a great new Rockstart accelerator opportunity. Doors close to entry on 30th September, so take a listen, and see if this could be the catalyst for you and your idea or company to come to life.
