Governor-Elect Hassan to Launch Statewide "Innovate NH Tour"

The Office of Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan

DURHAM – Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan will launch a statewide “Innovate NH Tour,” as part of her efforts to reach out to businesses, legislators, community leaders, and all Granite Staters for their ideas on how to keep New Hampshire moving forward.

Hassan's “Innovate NH Tour” will begin with two stops on the Seacoast highlighting the Green Launching Pad at the University of New Hampshire and an innovative company it has helped grow. 

Hassan will first hold a roundtable discussion and briefing at the University of New Hampshire on the Green Launching Pad, which helps new businesses grow by providing entrepreneurs with technical, scientific and business assistance from faculty and students at UNH.  Following the discussion, Hassan will visit one of the Green Launching Pad’s success stories, Therma-HEXX in Portsmouth, which specializes in the manufacturing of green building products to improve heating and cooling. Therma-HEXX, was recently awarded the N.H. High Tech Council's Product of the Year Award for its innovative heating and cooling technology.

As Governor, Maggie Hassan will bring people together to keep New Hampshire moving forward by focusing on innovation, fiscal responsibility and common-sense solutions to our challenges. Hassan will work with members of both parties to develop a fiscally responsible balanced budget that protects New Hampshire’s priorities without an income or sales tax. She will work to implement her “Innovate NH” jobs plan, which focuses on building the best workforce in the country, providing tax credits to businesses, and giving businesses technical assistance to help them create jobs. And Hassan will reach out to legislators and citizens across the state to listen to their ideas on moving New Hampshire forward.
