San Francisco, California

Energy Foundry and Coalition: Energy are teaming up to introduce a new happy hour and networking series. On the first Thursday of every month, "The Current" will bring in entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, nonprofits and investors to Coalition's downtown coworking space to network, discuss, and celebrate the energy innovation community in Chicago.
On Thursday, September 4th, we're excited to kick things off with Clean Energy Trust, who recently announced the launch of the Illinois Clean Energy Fund to support seed funding for energy innovation in Illinois.
We invite you to head over to Coalition, grab a couple of snacks and a beer from our office kegerator, and join us for what will be a fun and "energized" evening. Make sure you stay 'til the end, when we'll raffle off some energy efficient prizes!
Follow along with #TheCurrent.
**UPDATE: We're happy to announce that GE Ventures’ energy team will be joining us to get a glimpse into Chicago's energy innovation scene and mingle with entrepreneurs and industry folks alike.
