That’s the motto for Cleveland, it being the home of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
For those of us who care about the clean tech arena, Cleveland also rocks because the area is making bets on advanced energy technologies. Many local constituencies recognize that the clean energy sector represents a tremendous opportunity for the region to pursue a new front for economic growth.
And so it is that I have decided to move to Cleveland and attempt to make an impact there. Effective last week, I have accepted a role at The Cleveland Foundation to lead regional efforts to build and catalyze economic activity in advanced energy technologies.
I suspect that many of those in clean tech would be surprised at Cleveland’s interest level and current activities in developing commercial activity in advanced energy. With this posting, I invite you to contact me at the Foundation to learn more about what’s going on in Northeast Ohio. Who knows? Maybe you will find out, as I have, that Cleveland is a land of great opportunity.
