WASHINGTON, DC (September 27) -- Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton announced today that partner Mark Riedy was appointed to the CABLE External Advisory Board.

CABLE is a 19-university consortium, created by a $2.75 million grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). CABLE’s aim is to accelerate the entry of young leaders into the bioeconomy — today’s students are tomorrow’s co-founders, CTOs and CEOs. The grant is part of a three-year project to train the future workforce in the bioeconomy industry.

The project’s goal is to train 60 students over three years in the area of biobased technology to increase the number of students pursuing leadership positions in bioeconomy-related careers. The project will recruit a team consisting of a student and faculty member from each of the participating 19 colleges and universities. Students will spend a year in leadership training in the bioeconomy industry. The training will include one-on-one mentoring with industry leaders, feedback on career preparation and academic training needs, internship and externship opportunities, and workshop and conference participation.

Mr. Riedy is Co-Team Leader of the Energy, Project Finance and Clean Technologies Practice. He primarily focuses his practice on U.S. and international project development and finance and private placement representation of renewable and conventional energy, clean technology, environmental and infrastructure clients. Mr. Riedy’s clients include developers, lenders, EPCs, O&Ms, equipment providers, private equity, venture capital and infrastructure funds.
