Fall River, MA, USA – May 22, 2018 - The Association of Clean Technology Incubators of New England, Inc. (ACTION) announces its rebranding with a name change and expanded scope of operations after seven years of service to cleantech incubators, to become ACTION Innovation Network.

In 2011, ACTION was chartered as an organization to support incubators and their member entrepreneurs developing innovative clean energy and environmental technologies. In addition, ACTION will now offer membership to technology business incubators that support startups in other complimentary and convergent technology sectors, including life sciences, medical devices, robotics, and ocean and marine technologies. Membership is also open to other entrepreneur support organizations and international agencies with common interests in helping early-stage companies with high-growth potential to commercialize their technologies and succeed in the global marketplace.

ACTION Innovation Network’s Executive Director, Joan Popolo, states that “expanding our scope beyond our initial charter of cleantech incubators allows the organization significant growth opportunities. We see an increasing number of technology incubators throughout the Northeast and internationally. ACTION Innovation Network provides technology entrepreneur support organizations the opportunity to collaborate, share best practices and advance the industry along the highest professional standards with a common mission to build successful ventures for a healthier population and planet.”

With growing international interest in connections to the Northeast’s technology innovation ecosystem, ACTION Innovation Network will continue its role in introducing international startups to network resources to accelerate the expansion of their business operations in the region.
