Steve Socolof moderated a cleantech panel for the NJ EDA, including Eric Breese of Evonik, Keryl Cosenzo of Siemens, Doug Kushnerik of ExxonMobil, and Keally DeWitt of GAF Energy.

Steve Socolof moderated a NJ EDA Roundtable: New Jersey’s Clean Tech Innovation Ecosystem: What Role Should Big Corporates Play on December 5, 2019.  Many important technological advances in cleantech have been the work of startup companies and research universities. Large, well established companies also play a very substantial—if less well publicized—role as innovators in the field. The roundtable explored the cleantech contributions global companies are making here in New Jersey, and ways in which they may be able to play an even larger role in the state’s cleantech innovation ecosystem.  Panel included Keally DeWitt, Sr. Director, Marketing and Public Policy, GAF Energy (Parsippany), Eric Breese, Venture Capital Investment Director, Evonik Inc. (Parsippany), Doug Kushnerick, Sr. Scientific Advisor, ExxonMobil Research (Clinton and Paulsboro), and Keryl Cosenzo, Head, Government Research Programs, Siemens Corporate Technology (Princeton)

Moderator: Steve Socolof, Managing Partner, Tech Council Ventures, and Founding Head of Lucent Technologies New Ventures Group

Jim Gunton says NJ Governor Murphy’s New Jersey Innovation Evergreen Fund is a terrific idea!

“This fund will reverse the trend of movement away from New Jersey. Talent goes where there are well-funded and promising companies. I have seen companies go where they are able to get funding. Well-funded companies attract the best people. Those companies are the most likely to succeed. Then you grow and exit, and create a self-perpetuating dynamic. … It is vital to the New Jersey economy — and exciting to watch it happen.” – Jim Gunton, Managing Partner, Tech Council Ventures
