Our Mission

Greentown Labs’ mission is to accelerate climatetech innovation and commercialization by empowering entrepreneurs and enabling collaboration.

Our Values

The Greentown team views driving climate impact through entrepreneurship, partnership, and collaboration as our North Star. To curate, support, and foster our community of startups and corporate partners in the name of climate action, we use the following values as our compass. 

We Are OPEN

We believe in transparency and integrity, and use these qualities as a guide in all of our communications, behaviors, and attitudes. We are open to diverse perspectives, community members, and partners, and seek them out as often as we can.

We Are RESPECTFUL

We follow the golden rule and treat others how we want to be treated. We are thoughtful, helpful, and kind to our colleagues, community members, and partners, and we treat them all equally.

We are APPRECIATIVE

We celebrate and acknowledge wins within our team and community—both big and small. We are empathetic and patient with our colleagues and our community members.

We are RESOURCEFUL

We hustle with purpose. We’re collaborative and pragmatic in our approach to pursuing new opportunities and solving big challenges.

We are RESILIENT

We are driven by a passion for our mission and we subscribe to an optimistic mindset. We persevere in trying times with the grit of an entrepreneur.

We MAKE WORK FUN

We find humor and joy in our day-to-day operations and strive to create genuine camaraderie among our team. We welcome and encourage spontaneous team time amidst the buzz of our everyday activities.
