Convene sees the green energy sector contributing to our growth in the next few years primarily because of the global imperative to address the climate crisis. As the industry matures and companies in the sector grow, the demand for workspace that can accommodate fluctuating team sizes as well as meetings and events venues that attract top-tier clientele will only increase. We partner with companies like Dynamo Energy Hub because we not only believe in their mission, but they’re helping to fulfill this demand while creating opportunities for major tech companies, energy corporations, cleantech companies, and investors who want to be relevant in the space.
