“There are many rewards to entrepreneurship, but ample free time is not one of them. As I grew my business, I hired people to do what I no longer had time to do. I needed someone represent my business in the fight against climate change. In January 2013, Tech Networks of Boston became the first business to hire a Climate Action Liaison to advocate for policy solutions to protect our climate, create new jobs and stimulate economic growth. Together, we have formed a coalition to represent the voice of business in the climate change movement.”
– Susan Labandibar, Founder/Owner, Tech Networks of Boston
