Laura Rapaport, founder and CEO of North Bridge, is dedicated to educating the industry on Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE), what it is, and how it can be used in the current capital markets environment to provide liquidity for any project focused on sustainability and efficiency. 

North Bridge provides financing nationwide for buildings across all asset classes through C-PACE. To date, the company has spearheaded the largest C-PACE deal in Florida.
