Presented by Greenstart and GreenBiz Group, VERGE Accelerate is a half-day program and pitch competition bringing together the top venture capitalists and hottest digital cleantech startups at the intersection of energy, buildings and transportation technologies.
Attendees of VERGE Accelerate get to participate in:
Join a lively debate among leading venture capital leaders on the future of cleantech. We now live in a post-Solyndra world - does that mean "Cleantech 1.0" is over? (If so, what is "Cleantech 2.0"?) If investors are now looking for nimble, innovative startups offering IT and data-intensive business ideas, how can entrepreneurs position themselves to succeed?
Hear a panel of VCs from top firms like Mohr Davidow, Nth Power and Greenstart on how they're re-evaluating investment trends to generate big wins. Find out what they look for in entrepreneurs, and see if your technology is in these investors' sweet spot.
