Business Briefing at SfunCube

April 24, 2013, 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM PDT

Join us Wednesday April 24 from 5:30p to 7:30p at SfunCube in Jack London Square, Oakland for a stimulating conversation on entrepreneurship in solar. Learn about the 2013 Cleantech Open accelerator program and how you can get involved.

Sungevity Co-Founder and President, Danny Kennedy, will share his thoughts on the importance of, and prospects for, entrepreneurship in the solar industry. You will also get an exclusive sneak peek at the SfunCube, a new incubator and accelerator for solar entrepreneurs, that Danny will introduce at the event.

At the briefing, we'll give you an overview of the Cleantech Open. With over 700 companies served and more than $800 million raised, you'll be in great company. You will learn about our 2013 Business Accelerator and how to accelerate your cleantech startup with expert training, national visibility, great investor engagement and up to $200,000 in cash and services awarded. 

You will also hear from two Cleantech Open alumni: Michael Murray, CEO of Lucid Design Group, and Michael Palmquist, VP of Product Management for SolarNexus. And you'll have an opportunity to pitch your company to our audience of cleantech professionals. 

Don't have your own cleantech company? In addition to great networking, the event will include information about how you can get involved as a Cleantech Open volunteer, mentor, judge, investor and more. 

Light refreshments will be served from 5:30p to 6:30p, prior to the program.
