This is the business model for NICCE. NICCE and our partners together, create the leading clean energy commercialization organization in the world. In our network is 350 clean tech partners (CEOs, COOs, CFOs and other executive business leaders). We match inventors with investors and we bring technology to market. Our team is a professional commercialization team with more than 50 years combined experience. We are seeking locations for commercializing these technologies -localities that want to "make a deal" and who can offer good incentives beyond cheap space and shared fax machines/admin...we seek next generation business deals. For more information on who we are, review this document and give us a call.
