Cleantech Capital: Funding the Energy Future

December 4, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

Fundraising is challenging, particularly in the cleantech space. However, the sector has seen a recent increase in startup funding and corporate interest that has been coupled with a desire for more digital, distributed, and resilient solutions. Join us for a primer on energy fundraising – a panel of cleantech investors will discuss their approach to investing from initial pitch and diligence to investment and long-term engagement.

Investors will also share their perspectives on why the market is ripe for energy innovation, highlighting emerging energy technologies and trends that are attractive in the venture space. You will gain insight into how to engage with investors as an early-stage company, and how investors can add value and serve as strategic partners beyond funding.

Join us to learn where to start, what to look for, who to reach out to, how to reach out, what processes to anticipate, and how to work with your investors.
