Supporting green innovation in the Big Apple.
By Citi March 02, 2010 12:02 PM
Today there's a big need - but also a big opportunity - to support advances in clean technology, and to spur green job creation. Citi and the Citi Foundation have been committed to green initiatives for years, especially at the global level. But we're just as excited to support a new mentorship program right in our backyard that's working to get tomorrow's best ideas off the ground today.
SJF Advisory Services, a nonprofit organization that helps entrepreneurs and early-stage businesses in the "cleantech" industry, has matched promising cleantech entrepreneurs in the New York area with experienced industry leaders and veteran entrepreneurs. The aim is that with guidance and feedback from their mentors, peer-to-peer discussions, educational sessions on hot topics, feedback from SJF Ventures' investment team and access to its network - these entrepreneurs will be well equipped to develop and grow their businesses in order to achieve greater impact.
We wish SJF's first round of program participants much success. To learn more details about the program, check out our press release here.
