Some 30 national economic development, civic, venture capital and private equity leaders recently participated in a 3-day retreat hosted by Climate Prosperity, Inc. and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) and the Alliance for Regional Stewardship. The focus of the retreat was the soon-to-be launched Clean Economy Solutions Exchange, a national initiative to assist regional economic development leaders and national corporations to fulfill the full potentials of the clean energy economy for both regions and private enterprises.
Regional economic development leaders from Atlanta, Austin, Cleveland, Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Orlando, San Francisco, San Jose, South Carolina, and St. Louis joined venture capitalists, private equity and national site selection leaders in discussing and refining the proposed initiative, which is funded and supported by national foundations and private sector civic underwriting . 8 to 12 regions will be selected this summer to participate in this multi-year economic development initiative, which will match emerging clean economy enterprises with the economic development efforts of “investment ready” regions.
