Our Mission is to accelerate the sustainable economy locally with a focus on innovation, impact, and community. We are an Incubator, a Connector, and a Community Partner, acting in synergy, with Impact.

Be Green Hub

The Be Green Hub is an Incubator program built on the premise of nurturing green and social impact start- ups to accelerate their success as companies with purpose. Participation in the Hub provides numerous tangible and intangible benefits from incubation services and non-equity-linked financial awards. Differentiators include program-embedded social and environmental impact benchmarking and improvement tools via our Be Impact Program, along with offering a strong, established Community Network at a dedicated address.

Be Impact

To provide a tool for assessment, improvement, and expression of impact for our start-up companies and for local companies. We partnered with B-Lab (www.bcorporation.net), a global leader in corporate social responsibility and run a software-based, in-person workshops, and free program: the “Be Impact” Initiative.

Our established Community Engagement programs focus on community leaders and youth:

  • Green Neighbors Group
  • Leadership Academy
  • Bethesda Green Gala
  • Fields of Green Internship Fair
