Greentech Media, together with Black Coral Capital, announces a new conference that will bring together investors, limited partners, entrepreneurs, and service providers to reimagine the greentech startup sector: “NextWave Greentech Investing.” This one-day event is curated by Greentech Media CEO Scott Clavenna along with Black Coral Capital Partner Rob Day, and will take place at the SRI International Headquarters in Menlo Park, CA on September 12, 2013.
"At a time when many mainstream investors and members of the press have written off the greentech sector, an emerging group of innovative investors and entrepreneurs are developing new models and showing early good results,” said Event Chair Rob Day. “This event will bring together leading members of the limited partner, family office, corporate and entrepreneurial communities to have a conversation about this next phase: how we're going to see strong returns from the biggest market disruption opportunity the world has ever seen.”
The conference will provide a forum to discuss the opportunities around greentech market reinvention and sustained returns to an investor community looking for the right time to put money back to work in this critical sector. It will also feature presentations from industry experts such as Dan Reicher, Executive Director at the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance at Stanford University, and Raj Atluru, Managing Director at Silver Lake Kraftwerk.
Panels will include a discussion exclusively among limited partners, corporate strategic investors discussing NextWave investments, and a presentation on the cleanweb market.
Participating speakers include experts from organizations including: AlphaJet, BMW i Ventures, Broadscale, Generation Investment Management, Greenstart, FINSix, Lux Capital, Noesis, Venrock, SRI International, and more.
