Our consulting and advisory services include:
- Advocacy: “You may not have an interest in politics, but politics has an interest in you.” Clean tech companies often have their hands full perfecting their technologies, managing their supply chain partnerships and selling their products. More often than not, they lack the bandwidth to also manage the politics, external relations and community outreach that are just as critical to their success. This is our strength. We help clients make their case before government policy makers, engage collaboratively with stakeholders, and maintain strong lines of communication with community leaders.
- Funding and finance: We believe a successful funder/client relationship is built on a foundation of trust, clear communication, and shared objectives. Our team’s experience managing government financing programs and congressional appropriations processes allows us to identify relevant financing options for our clients, and to understand when and how to best access them. In addition, we work with clients to identify other funding sources to include philanthropic giving, foundations and private investors.
- Training and capacity building: Our team has extensive experience in training, curriculum development, presenting and capacity building. We shape and deliver thoughtful and participatory training experiences that engage local communities, establish buy-in, and achieve shared, long-term visions and plans of action.
