Thank God It’s Friday! We’ve all made it through another work week, and hopefully it was a productive one.
What have you been up to this past week? Did you make your quota, launch a new campaign, or close out an old project? We’d love for you to share with us what’s going in your world as we share what’s been happening here at TalenAlexander.
This week we’d like to re-introduce our friends at Envision America.
A national initiative to create smart cities established in Charlotte, NC
First off, did you know that Charlotte was awarded a 2015 Google eCity Award as the Digital Capital of North Carolina?
Though Charlotte boasts one of the nation’s largest Renaissance fairs, the Carolina Renaissance Festival, the city is also future focused. The Charlotte Research Institute helps the University of North Carolina collaborate with industry experts, host science festivals and create incubator-like work spaces for tech entrepreneurs. – Google
Envision America is one of these ‘incubator workspaces,’ and is a contributing factor to the Queen City’s recognition as the Carolinas digital capital.
Google is not they only large organization to take notice, as the White House Administration is actually seeking to replicate [Envision America] sustainability tech.
Bank of America SVP Robert Vail says,
Envision has saved nearly 50 thousand tons of CO2, $17 million, and 16 percent of Uptown’s energy since 2012. They expect to exceed their 20 percent goal by 2020.
It’s an exciting time for Envision America as this January 2016 as the non-profit just held their Interactive Workshop on January 12th-14th; visit the link here to learn more. The workshop marks the launch of the nationwide program with workshop being held in Charlotte. “City leaders from 10 winning communities will participate in Envision America’s workshop…”
TalenAlexander is proud to have partnered with the good people at Envision America and applaud them spearheading the nationwide sustainable tech initiative. What a time to be alive.
