The Collider is a nonprofit innovation center focused on catalyzing market-driven climate solutions.

Innovative climate solutions must be grounded in the best science and speak the language of business. But every day, businesses, and communities are making billions of dollars of decisions without this vital information. That’s where the Collider comes in. Headquartered in “Climate City” — Asheville, North Carolina — The Collider is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that exists to bring together diverse expertise and stimulate a new industry: climate products and services.

Collaboration at The Collider

We’re located in newly renovated space in downtown ‘Climate City.’

The Collider’s headquarters occupies 6,000 sq. ft. of the half-acre Callen Center in the heart of downtown Asheville North Carolina — also known as “Climate City” — a vibrant mountain town with a developing reputation as a hub for innovation. Offering world-class cowork and office suites for businesses focused on climate innovation, our facility is just a “campus walk” away from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, housing the world’s largest collection of weather, climate and environmental data.
