Meet the Brightest Innovators

The Cleantech Open is the world’s largest cleantech accelerator, and our Investor Connect is a ‘speed-dating’ event which connects investors with startups that have completed the Cleantech Open’s programs, grooming companies in software, materials, energy storage, smart grid, agriculture, water conservation and purification, clean chemistry, and a host of other products that also happen to be ‘clean.’ If you are an Angel, private VC, corporate VC, or potential strategic partner or would otherwise like to meet this year’s semifinalists and finalists one-on-one, please join us for the 2014 Cleantech Open Investor Connect.

If you are a full-time venture capital or angel investor, or if your firm is a current Cleantech Open sponsor and you would like to attend this invitation only event, please contact Jeff Carpenter or Wayne Janisch for your ticket. Deadline for invitation is October 31st, 2014.

The Rules are Simple

You select the type and stage of companies that you would like to meet. The Cleantech Open will then arrange a series of seven-minute pitch meetings with companies that fit your investment or partnering profile.

To date, 865 companies have graduated from the Cleantech Open in the US alone. Between them they have raised over $950 million. This year’s companies are just as promising – giving you an opportunity to improve your deal flow in just one afternoon.

The Investor Connect is also the prelude to the Cleantech Open 2014 Global Forum and features:
