The Emerging Cleantech Investor Landscape: Corporate Strategic

As venture capital and R&D budgets have shrunk corporate investors have realized the need to step up and fund the innovation that previously was capitalized by others, and this class of Cleantech investment has exploded in recent years. Untraditional players from across a broad span of industry have recognized the pervasive effects of climate change and aggressively moved to fund innovation with the potential to prevent or adapt to a warmer planet. Interest in finding sustainable solutions has emerged from unexpected places and this panel is an inspiring opportunity to hear from the people on the front lines, searching out new technologies and bringing them into their massive organizations to deploy across the globe. Don’t miss this chance to learn how corporate investors think about climate change, how this drives their investment strategies, what technologies they look for, how they think about IP protection, how they integrate new innovation into their organizations, and how they work with entrepreneurs and other types of investors.
