Somerville’s Greentown Labs launches Indiegogo campaign to get greener faster

Somerville’s Greentown Labs keeps growing and growing – a good sign for the area’s innovation companies and the future of clean technology — but now it needs your help.

Greentown Labs, one of the largest private incubators for energy-related start-ups, is expected to open the new space in mid-August.

With the additional space, Greentown Labs can accommodate 10 more start-ups.
