National Academy West Coast

June 27, 2014, 7:00 AM to June 29, 2014, 3:30 PM PDT

Attendance to an Academy is mandatory for all participating teams. You have 2 Academy locations to choose from. Each team is required to send at least ONE person to at least ONE of the Academies. You are entitled to send team members to both, if you wish.

The Cleantech Open Academy is an "MBA cleantech boot camp" to train entrepreneurs how to create fundable, successful, sustainable cleantech businesses, and how to tell an intriguing story of that business. Throughout the Academy, entrepreneurs are supported by a host of mentors, sustainability experts, student interns, world-class speakers and educators, and more. Coupled with unique networking opportunities, the Cleantech Open Academy is the first major milestone of the 2014 competition and attendance to one or more academies is required for all semifinalist teams.
