Do you want access to unmatched professional development to launch a successful cleantech company? Are you an investor looking to unlock proprietary deal flow? Cleantech Open is the world's largest cleantech accelerator, and is now accepting applications for the Cleantech Open 2012 Business Competition to help you achieve those goals! To find the best emerging companies across New York State, Cleantech Open is working alongside Green Capital Empire (GCE) - the new hub for green tech investors, entrepreneurs, and service providers. 

You're invited to an intimate briefing to hear more about Cleantech Open & Green Capital Empire, expand your cleantech network, and explore funding opportunities to get your cleantech startup going and growing.
