2010 Investor Forum

November 17, 2010, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM PST

The Investor Forum takes place in San Jose on November 17, 2010, on the morning of the 2010 Cleantech Open National Awards Gala.

Venture capitalists, angel and corporate funders, and Cleantech Open sponsors are invited to convene at the Investor Forum for a series of efficient meetings with Cleantech Open alumni and the 2010 semifinalists.

At 10am on Wednesday November 17, up to 100 companies from the United States and around the world will be available to meet with investors. Each investor will be assigned a numbered table. The companies will rotate between investor tables for a series of “speed dating” seven-minute one-on-one meetings, allowing investors to scope out hot technologies and companies of interest, and cleantech startups to get face time with motivated investors.

Investors will be asked to complete an online form prior to attending, specifying areas (and companies) of particular interest. Upon arrival, all investors will receive a printout with a series of seven minute meetings held at numbered tables – speed dating style.

Semifinalists in this year’s competition, as well as alumni companies from prior years, will prepare a short pitch to begin the conversation with each investor.
