On Earth Day, New Hampshire’s business recruitment team will be sharing a simple message with their friends to the south – the grass is always greener on the Granite State side of the fence.
Next Thursday, two New Hampshire Division of Economic Development business recruiters will take part in 92.5 The River’s Earth Day concert on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Featuring “green” vendors, family activities and a concert by national recording stars They Might Be Giants and Citizen Cope, the event offers the economic development team an opportunity to discuss the advantages associated with doing business in New Hampshire.
“With the recent announcement of the University of New Hampshire Green Launching Pad, an innovative green energy technology commercialization program, there has never been a better time to establish an environmentally conscious business in New Hampshire,” New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy said. “The development of good paying green jobs is an emerging reality in today’s business world and the Granite State is fertile ground for companies interested in promoting environmentally sustainable practices.”
Accompanying the Division of Economic Development’s team will be Randy Bryan of ConVerdant Vehicles, a two-year-old Concord, NH-based company that converts pickup trucks and Toyota Priuses to plug-in hybrids. In an effort to draw more visitors to the New Hampshire booth, Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion has donated a pair of tickets to this year’s Greenerpalooza III concert.
“We’re blessed to have such great partners who share our vision for a state that embraces both business growth and energy conservation,” Duddy said. “We look forward to meeting with Massachusetts companies looking to expand or relocate and to spreading the word about New Hampshire as a premier destination to do business.”
