“My passion is to identify business opportunities and facilitate market access for various industry sectors. With an extensive network of contacts in Canada, you can trust Merenbridge to be your eyes and ears on the ground in order to grow your business.”

Johanna’s passion is to help solve big problems.

“In cleantech sectors, that might mean working to help Canadian First Nations communities get off their reliance on shipping in diesel for power generation or helping waste-to-energy projects get off the ground. In the mining sector, that might mean helping companies turn hazardous waste into valuable raw material.”

She says that Merenbridge can open valuable doors to new customers and partners.

The company offers targeted research, partner searches, lead generation and strategic consulting with the aim to bridge the gaps between companies and new markets, bridge differences in understanding through in-depth qualified research, bridge distances through closer ties and communication, and bridge the space between ideas and reality.
