Initiate will not only have pitches from our participants, but we will have sessions such as:
Corporate Venture – Accelerating Cleantech Innovation
Where cleantech startups are concerned, the VC train has left the station. Clean-energy entrepreneurs seeking to save the world should look elsewhere. Increasingly, utilities and corporate investors are stepping in to provide cleantech startups with funding and market opportunities through the infamous valley of death. Individually and collectively, through coalitions like Energy Impact Partners, these investors are seeking innovative technologies and business models that will provide them with competitive advantages in the clean-energy transition.
