Cleantech VIP Dinner
March 22, 2012
Palo Alto, CA
Starting in 2006, cleantech became a major VC focus area, and early stage start-up financing rose by 50%-plus annually for three years. Then came the financial crisis along with some high-profile failures like Solyndra. Venture capitalists are now hesitant to gamble on early-stage cleantech companies and have shifted their focus to later stage companies. This investor caution combined with the current scrutiny regarding government funding has entrepreneurs concerned about additional hurdles they will now have to clear to secure money from the government.
How do companies manage these possible new obstacles?
If they do secure funding what kind of oversight should they expect?
Join us for an overview of the government funding marketplace and overall regulatory environment with three cleantech industry experts.
Jeff Selman is the Moderator and Angela Styles is one of the speakers at this event.
