The Run Down on the Event

Some detail on each part of the program…

Monday, October 16th (by invitation only)

Investor Connect – Monday, October 16th, 4:00-5:30p

As you’ll recall, Investor Connect is an opportunity to quickly meet many investors and corporate partners active in your specific space. The event is structured in a speed dating format. At the event, you’ll receive a dance card with a list of specific investors and corporate partners listed in sequence. Once we begin, you’ll have 7-9 minutes to talk with each.

VIP Networking Reception – Monday, October 16th, 6:00-7:30p

After Investor Connect, the City of Fremont is hosting a VIP networking reception in the hotel.

This is your opportunity to connect both with judges, investors, and corporate partners over a drink and light refreshments. Do plan to join us!

Tuesday, October 17th (open to public)

Innovation Showcase – 7:30-10:00a

We’ll have room for 40 startups – 24 from this year’s cohort, and select alumni – at our Western Region our showcase (i.e. expo). Participants will have half of a 6-foot table to use to display their product and tell their story. It’s a great opportunity to connect with the broader Cleantech commercialization community in the West.

Western Region Awards Celebration, 10:00a-3:30p

Following the Innovation Showcase, we’ll move to our public Awards Celebration. This will include a program of prominent speakers on the topic of “California’s expanding leadership in Cleantech Innovation”. At the event, we’ll also announce both our Regional judging track winners and final winners that will go on to represent our Western Region at the Global Forum in January in Los Angeles. We’re working towards an audience of between 200-250 industry professionals. It will be a great opportunity to connect with our cleantech commercialization community.
