Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles


Silos inhibit dialog, innovation and progress. We catalyze trust-based relationships that deliver results.


Climate change impacts all, just not equally. We strive to ensure that access to the benefits of cleantech innovation is proportional to need.

Bias for Action

Innovators need help yesterday. We must move at with a decisiveness and pace that allows us to support the most dynamic innovators in the country


Understanding customer need is critical to effective solution development. By working in the ecosystem, we gain unique insight into its unmet needs allowing us to orchestrate the right response


Every decision and promise we make drives results with positive and negative consequences. We think deeply about the impact our decisions and promises create and take ownership for those results.

Experienced Local Leadership

Our initiative is backed by pioneers from the academic, public and private sectors – aligned behind the belief that Georgia has the potential to be a world-class, inclusive cleantech innovation ecosystem.
