ROCHESTER, NY (December 9, 2021) –PEKO Precision Products, a multi-faceted advanced center for technology development and hardware commercialization, is honored to have Scott Baxter appointed to the advisory board at For ClimateTech, a program designed for hardware companies developing products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions to accelerate and de-risk their manufacturing process from prototype to production.
PEKO is an expert in the areas of new product introduction and development, and since becoming a strategic partner and sponsor of the For ClimateTech program, has become a go-to mentor and resource for early-stage technology commercialization amongst their cohorts.
Scott Baxter holds a bachelor’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering from RIT and in Economics from St. John Fisher College and has spent his career at PEKO since 2008. Since meeting the For ClimateTech team, his attention has been drawn to the needs of budding hardware innovators. As an advisory board member, Baxter will serve to educate For ClimateTech’s leading climate entrepreneurs on the exciting journey of manufacturing.
“PEKO’s decision to strengthen the partnership with For ClimateTech underlines a shared commitment to providing high value to renewable innovators by offering real-world manufacturing and commercialization expertise they have trouble finding elsewhere,” says Baxter. “Joining the advisory board was a natural step in forging the relationship between the two entities. I intend to use this opportunity to provide innovators with my most thoughtful guidance.”
The For ClimateTech program is supported by the NYSERDA and will be administered by impact innovation company SecondMuse and the non-profit entrepreneurship catalyst NextCorps. For more information, read our original press release announcing partnership with the For ClimateTech program.
