On January 25, the Office of Global Partnerships, in collaboration with partners Good Machine and Arm, will launch a San Francisco Coalition for Climate Entrepreneurship (CCE) Hub.  The San Francisco CCE Hub, the first within the United States, will provide climate entrepreneurs from around the world the opportunity to prototype, scale, and develop their innovations, benefitting from Silicon Valley’s technology ecosystem.

Through CCE, the U.S. Department of State and private sector partners contribute to economic empowerment in developing countries by nurturing entrepreneurial climate solutions.  CCE offers access to capital, technical assistance and capacity building, mentorship, and network opportunities for early and growth-stage startups.  Currently, there are seven active CCE Hubs in Accra, Ghana; Hanoi, Vietnam; Nairobi, Kenya; Marrakech, Morocco; Bogota, Colombia; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Guatemala City, Guatemala. 

This event is open to press who RSVP.  The CCE Hub launch will take place at Good Machine’s venture studio at 1500 Michigan St, San Francisco, CA.  Please arrive by 10:45 a.m. on January 25 for setup.

If you would like to RSVP, email partnerships@state.gov.  To schedule an interview with Special Representative for Global Partnerships Dorothy McAuliffe, please contact Senior Advisor Jake Rubenstein via cell at (412) 860 2020.
