Berkeley Cleantech Lunch Briefing

April 26, 2010, 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM PDT

Are you a cleantech entrepreneur?  Looking to join a startup company?  We're bringing together some of the Cleantech Open's best Alumni companies to talk with you about their experiences.  Join us for a "brown bag" lunch event as we discuss the Cleantech Open competition, offer great local networking, and have last year's finalist teams discuss where they are now in the funding process, and give you their insights into winning the competition.  Michael Cohen from the office Technology Licensing will also join us to discuss how entrepreneurs can work with the office to catalyze their companies.

Please bring your own lunch.  Drinks and dessert will be provided.  We look forward to seeing you.
