I was just reading through some news that I haven’t had a chance to read in detail, and came across this article, and it immediately brought a smile to my face. Austin and the NASDAQ working together like that. How cool.  I’m always so proud of the initiatives that Austin has and how active they are in their community, and am happy to see this achievement for them. This information comes to us via an email from Austin’s Human Capital.

Clean Energy Director Closes NASDAQ 
The Austin Chamber of Commerce has formalized a partnership with NASDAQ to collaborate on clean energy initiatives going forward. NASDAQ recently approached the Austin Chamber with interest in growing their portfolio of publicly-traded clean energy companies by leveraging Austin’s rapidly-emerging cleantech industry cluster. As a symbol of the partnership NASDAQ’s closing bell was rung by Jose Beceiro, Director of Clean Energy for the Chamber on Wednesday, June 18 at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square, New York City. Beceiro was joined by representatives of the Austin cleantech community. 

The article also says:  NASDAQ is also interested in aligning their long-term clean energy strategy with Austin’s vision of becoming the Cleantech Capital of the World. NASDAQ recognizes Austin’s leadership in clean technology innovation, cleantech startup incubation, sustainability, renewable energy usage, energy efficiency, energy conservation, natural resource conservation, environmental protection, smart grid technologies, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle R&D, alternative fuels, energy storage and public outreach through our CleanTX Forum, SEEN and Clean Energy Venture Summit events.
