Nivatha Balendra completed the yearlong Pathy Foundation Fellowship in 2022. Her initiative, Impact Framework for CleanTech Community in Canada focused on developing an impact arm for her startup, Dispersa.

…this included proposing a regulatory framework that would encourage the adoption of clean technologies such as Dispersa‚Äôs bio-ingredient technology. Such a framework would help distinguish greenwashing from real sustainable solutions. This impact arm would also address social impact by creating community-based initiatives to help bridge the gap in underrepresented groups within the CleanTech sector.

Nivantha recently spoke with Forbes about closing a $3-million funding round led by the support of Invest Nova Scotia.
