CC and The Engine venture ecosystem: an alignment of ambition

28th Apr 2022

Our brand relaunch has landed just as we ramp up our commitment to The Engine, the ambitious venture capital firm spun out of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to support ‘Tough Tech’ companies and solve key challenges in climate change, human health and advanced systems. What’s particularly energizing is that as a strategic partner, we get to engage with founders of disruptive start-ups who are so passionate, driven and mission focused. The alignment with our own renewed purpose couldn’t be stronger.
