Catalyzing Cleantech: Where is the Money in 2013?


 Steady capital is a must for all companies. The first step in funding is knowing where to look. Every day, we read the depressing news headlines about cleantech investment "collapsing" in 2012, companies going out of business, investors shutting down funds or pulling out of cleantech investment but there are some bright spots in all the doom and gloom. Not all venture firms are joining the cleantech exodus. There is money for cleantech! On March 21st we will be highlighting firms that are actively investing in emerging cleantech companies and firms that have raised new funds with allocation for cleantech.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Who is getting funding and why?
  • What sectors are the most attractive?
  • What are the new funds for early stage investments?
  • What is new and what should we expect for 2013?

Join key players who are actively investing in cleantech, to discuss 2013 opportunities and trends to access capital for your emerging cleantech company.

Our Panel discussions are interactive, informal, and intend to be a candid conversation more than a presentation. We want you to walk away with the real story behind how things work so you can make it happen yourself. So bring your questions with you! Each Panel is followed by a Networking Reception.
