Climate change presents a clear threat to modern civilization in both the near and long term. Nations with the ability to pursue cleantech research and development have a mandate to do so. The question of how best to undertake this task then naturally arises. The purpose of this thesis is to examine one possible method of promoting cleantech entrepreneurship: a cleantech-focused combination incubator-prototyping space. Using the resource based view, I make a case study of Greentown Labs, a space which fits this profile. I will examine how and why the particular combination of resources found in Greentown Labs supports the needs of its cleantech-focused hardware member companies. I further explore role of external inputs in contributing to overall performance. I will also show how the member companies can act as resources for each other. Finally, I consider the degree to which the resource rich environment supports effectual processes among its members.
