SF Business Briefing - Cleantech Nation

April 23, 2013, 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM PDT


Join us for stimulating conversation among industry leaders.  Learn about our 2013 Cleantech Open program and how you can get involved.  

Clean Edge Senior Editor Clint Wilder will discuss his book Clean Tech Nation: How the U.S. Can Lead in the New Global Economy - and why America's prominence in innovation and entrepreneurship is such a critical component of clean tech leadership. Co-authored with Clean Edge managing director Ron Pernick, Clean Tech Nation was published by Harper Collins in late 2012.
We will give you an overview of the Cleantech Open and our 2013 accelerator program, the largest Cleantech accelerator in the United States.  And you will hear from our Cleantech open alumni, including Heidi Lubin, CEO of HEVT, last year's Cleantech Open grand prize winner.
Finally, you will have an opportunity to pitch your start-up to our audience of cleantech professionals. 
About Cleantech Nation:
"Clean Tech Nation dares to imagine a country in which bipartisanship reigns, green energy is our nation’s greatest national resource, and our competitive edge in the global economy is restored. With their Seven-Point Action Plan for Repowering America, Pernick and Wilder show us how — now it’s up to all Americans, across every sector, to follow through.”

—President Bill Clinton
