Navigate Webinar: Cleantech Goes Public with SPAC



Date: April 7, 2021

Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM (EST)

Location: Webinar

Mintz will be sponsoring NECEC's 2021 Navigate webinar, Cleantech Goes Public with SPAC, on April 7, 12-1 p.m. EST via Zoom.

SPAC, or Special Purpose Acquisition Company, has been one of the most talked-about acronyms in the cleantech sector in the past few months. SPACs are companies with no commercial operations that are formed strictly to raise capital through an IPO for the purpose of acquiring an existing company, and they've become an increasingly popular vehicle through which cleantech companies go public.

Join this special NECEC Navigate webinar to hear a panel of experts discuss SPACs and a recent case study from XL Fleet, which went public via SPAC in October 2020.

Speakers include:

  • Tom Burton, Member/Chair, Energy & Sustainability Practice, Mintz
  • Debora Frodl, Board Chair, XL Fleet
  • Tod Hynes, President, XL Fleet
  • Marc Marano, Managing Director, Sustainability, Canaccord Genuity



Tom Burton has helped to shape the clean energy industry by drawing on his passion for innovation. As a Mintz attorney, Tom counsels investors, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 100 companies. He also guides start-up organizations and accelerators to foster the next generation of energy leaders.
