To Accelerate the Transition to Canada’s Sustainable Economy
Through our resources, news, and event postings we offer entrepreneurs along with small and medium enterprises working in the sustainability sector a network to connect into. Our members are working together to create a more sustainable world and we are proud to help them develop and grow.
All members of the SMARTNet Alliance receive exclusive benefits including invites to members-only events, insights into funding opportunities, access to member-only resources, and the ability to work with fellow members on projects across the sustainability sector. We also offer a number of services to our members including payroll management, mentorship, and help with marketing and promotion.
Our members also have access to consumer driven events such as Green Drinks and the SMARTNet Sustainability Showcase and the ability to work at our hot desks in the Ottawa area.
I recommend membership to any green, carbon reducing, or cleantech firms that are looking to join a community focussed on sustainability that can help create business opportunities.
