Nova Scotia, which under an NDP government has been more proactive on the clean energy and environmental front, has launched a competition through its technology commercialization agency, Innovacorp, called the Nova Scotia CleanTech Open. Entrepreneurs have until Dec. 1 to submit their entries. It’s a bold initiative for a small province, and perhaps Ontario officials should ask themselves why they haven’t done the same thing. “The winner of The Nova Scotia CleanTech Open will receive $100,000 in cash, $200,000 negotiable seed investment, mentoring, and in-kind business building services, including one-year free rent of turn-key space at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre,” according to the CleanTech Open web site.
Good luck, and congrats for taking the initiative.
