Davidson incubator targeting green energy start-ups (access required)

By Sam Boykin DAVIDSON — Looking to foster growth in downtown Davidson, several local government agencies and a real estate developer formed in January a start-up business incubator targeting companies in the green energy and sustainability industries. The Project for innovation, Energy and Sustainability (PiES) is a public-private partnership between the Town of Davidson, Lake Norman Economic Development Corp. and Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce. It’s designed to help emerging and early-stage businesses through the various phases of growth and development. Kathleen Rose, president of Rose & Associates Southeast, Inc., a land development and real estate consulting firm, is the project’s founder and executive director. She is also managing partner of Urban Organic I, LLC, a property management company that owns South Main Square, a mixed-use development in Davidson where PiES occupies eight offices. “The goal is to help start-up and early-stage companies grow and stay in the community,” said Rose. “This helps create jobs and a more vibrant downtown.”
