Now in its largest location in the Miami area, EcoTech Visions has found a permanent home. This unique green business incubator and makers space is the cumulation of years of hard work and focus by founder and president, Pandwe Gibson.
Located in the Green Corridor in Miami and offering over 26,000 square feet of space, it provides a community-based location for green businesses, entrepreneurs and the smaller Mom and Pop companies that want to move into environmentally-friendly and innovative ways to grow their business.
Currently, EcoTech Visions offers support for member businesses in all green areas of the economy. This includes agricultural businesses, technology companies, electric vehicles and transportation, green culinary businesses, all-natural products for the home as well as personal care.
In total, 75 companies have benefited from the incubator lab, business resources, and the services offered at EcoTech Visions. With different levels of members and various individual services, businesses can work within their budget while still taking advantage of the benefits of belonging to this collaborative approach to launching a green business.
The building provides local green producers a market space at it’s Artisans in The Garden event, with the opportunity to connect directly with restaurants, chefs and culinary services to promote environmental and sustainable food production methods.
Adding more training options and expanding the Foundation side of EcoTech is a continued push. Emphasis on providing opportunities for people in the community to take free training or to work in one of the programs is a valuable way to give people the skills they need for the new wave of “green-collar” jobs.
