A PNWER Congregate Newsletter

Vol. 2 | March 2021
“Congregate: A Solutions Accelerator” is focused on scaling opportunities that will help safely
re-open tourism, performing arts, travel, and hospitality (TPATH). The goal is to work with state and local governments, industry leaders, and innovators on solutions that drive the economy forward.

TPATH is a major economic driver for many rural and urban-adjacent communities. To reopen these industries, we need both technologies and policies that provide public health safety measures that allow people to congregate safely.

Congregate will:
  • Be a catalyst for innovation in biotechnology, health security, and supply-chain solutions
  • Increase regional, national, and government connectivity across innovation clusters to support entrepreneurship
  • Scale models to address the new congregation environments post-pandemic. We will find and incubate potential solutions, pilot these solutions with affected industries, and scale solutions globally to reopen and bring jobs to the U.S. economy.
In February, PNWER hosted health officials from the States of Alaska and Oregon on our COVID-19 Recovery Call Series to discuss vaccine distribution strategies.
