Collider is a coworking, educational & event space focused on environmental & climate change adaptation & resilience
The Collider is a physical and intellectual meeting space for “strategic collisions” between business and science – a place where knowledge-based entrepreneurs and companies focus on innovative products, services, support and solutions around environmental and climate change adaptation and resilience.
We’re located in newly renovated space in downtown ‘Climate City’ – Asheville North Carolina
The Collider occupies 6,000 sq. ft. of the half-acre Callen Center, on the newly renovated top floor of the Wells Fargo building in the heart of downtown Asheville, a vibrant mountain town with a developing reputation as “Climate City.” Our world-class facility is just steps away from the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), a division of the federal National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the world’s largest repository of climate and environmental data.
We’re not an advocacy organization – we’re about accelerating an emerging climate resilient economy
Our goal at The Collider is to accelerate an emerging climate resilient economy by combining talent, knowledge, teams, tools and processes, with a key ingredient being climate and environmental data at NCEI. Climate data commercialization transforms raw climate data into useable products and services. The Collider helps facilitate this process by bringing together scientists, engineers, business, investors, suppliers, students and potential customers within a “climate technology ecosystem.”
