CleanTech North is a Canadian clean technology consortium created in 2009 to support the business development goals of promising cleantech companies. Under the direction of Mindfirst President and CleanTech North Executive Director Henry Vehovec, the Mindfirst team created the CleanTech North Awards, given annually to the most promising cleantech companies in Canada.

Members in CleanTech North participate in monthly workshops and seminars aimed at increasing their market readiness and expanding their network within the industry. They also have direct access to Cluster Sponsors who can provide industry insights and leading practices relevant to their business requirements.
