Innovations across the sector: Meet the Cleantech Open Northeast Finalists for 2022

During this special episode of our Founder series, we are sitting down with Beth Zonis Senior Director @ the Cleantech Open Northeast chapter and 4 of the finalists from the 2022 program. The Cleantech Open is considered the world’s oldest and largest cleantech accelerator, providing entrepreneurs and technologists the resources needed to launch a successful cleantech company.

This was the second time we had Beth and the winners of the Cleantech Open with us on the show, and it was great to learn about the new companies going through the program and hear about their journeys and startups, their challenges, and market potential. During the episode, we will hear from each of these incredible founders, and how you can get involved in their exciting innovations to fight climate change:

John Ireland, Founder and CEO of NTP Technologies – a startup aimed at reducing and eliminating synthetic nitrogen fertilizer by providing farmers a cleaner and greener alternative that is organic, salt-free, and produced onsite and on demand.

Ian McKendry, Senior Research Scientist at Hit Nano – a startup focused on advanced manufacturing of energy storage materials aimed at producing creating more energy and carbon-efficient cathodes for batteries.

Bohdan Radejko, CEO of Kasava Engineering – a startup that has created a more powerful and efficient transmission that allows smaller engines to perform as well as larger engines and reduces greenhouse gases.

Skylar Bagdon, CEO of Verde – a startup that has developed solar panels that are 10x lighter in weight and more flexible than currently available rooftop panels.


When we reach 1000 subscribers we will plant 1000 trees with our partners. Help us to reach this 1st goal.
