Some have called it Asheville's #climate #tech moonshot. This past Friday, The Collider opened its stunning headquarters downtown. It's billed as a next-generation innovation hub to commercialize new technologies and services for the emerging $10 trillion climate adaptation infrastructure industries. #TheCollider will strive to marry entrepreneurs, climate scientists, data scientists, and big data (think, terrabytes) with the planning needs of industry, governments and institutions in order to launch new climate products and climate tech companies. http://ventureasheville.com/collider-launches-climate-innovation-space/
