VIDEO: Greg Lavery, MD of repurposed office furniture company Rype Office, pitches to top investors as part of BusinessGreen's Technology & Investment Forum

Last month saw 15 of the UK's most exicting clean tech entrepreneurs pitch their prospective businesses to investors at BusinessGreen's Technology & Investment Forum, which was hosted online this year in association with Innovate UK.

A vast range of businesses and ideas were on show covering renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, green buildings, ultra-efficient toilets, and much more, and this month BusinessGreen is publishing a series of short pitch videos from the event. Each entrepreneur was given four minutes to deliver an 'elevator pitch' introducing their business, the opportunities it offers, and its short to medium-term fund-raising plans.

Delivered as part of the Net Zero Innovate Hub, hosted with support from Boston Consulting Group and Kingspan, the cleantech showcase series continues today with Greg Lavery - managing director of Rype Office, which repurposes old office furniture into new desks, chairs and more in order to cut down on costs, waste and CO2.

His pitch can be watched in full above, while the rest of last month's event - including all of the pitches - can be watched back on-demand via the event website.
