BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum: Two weeks left to register

Second annual clean tech showcase event aims to bring together technology innovators and green investors

There are just two weeks left for clean tech firms and investors to register their interest in attending the upcoming BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum.

Hosted in association with Innovate UK, Clean + Cool, and BusinessGreen's sister title Investment Week, the second annual BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum will offer clean tech and sustainability start-ups, green entrepreneurs, and top investors the chance to jointly explore investment opportunities in the UK's vibrant green technology sector.

The half-day session will feature an opening address from green investment expert, Julia Groves, head of crowdfunding at Downing LLP, followed by a series of rapid fire four minute presentations from up to 20 of the UK's most exciting investment stage clean tech firms.

The forum will be staged at BusinessGreen's offices in central London on the morning of Wednesday October 4th, and in addition to a series of presentations will allow investors and entrepreneurs to meet through a number of structured networking sessions.

Spaces for the Forum are limited, and BusinessGreen is calling on clean tech and sustainability companies and investors to register their interest in attending the invite-only event by August 21st at 5pm.

Ahead of the forum, Clean + Cool, the entrepreneurs' mission that for the past five years has helped successfully promote UK clean tech firms overseas, will stage a pitching master class to help interested parties prepare their presentation.  

"Having just run the Clean + Cool Mission 2017 to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, we saw first-hand what a vital role events such as this play in their innovation ecosystem," said Guy Pattison, co-founder of Clean + Cool. "The BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum is a key date in the calendar, not only because it gives clean tech SMEs a chance to pitch for investment, but also because it helps the flow of connections and ideas between investors and entrepreneurs that is vital to creating a strong clean tech community in the UK."

Speaking at the launch of the event last month, Christian Inglis, senior innovation lead at Innovate UK, said the forum was designed to help companies accelerate the next stage of their development.

"Our role at Innovate UK is to help clean and sustainable technology companies grow and scale to become world leaders," he said. "This event allows them to do that by catalysing meaningful connections to the investment community that would not otherwise happen.

"We see time and again that when entrepreneurs know how to sell themselves as well as their business innovations, the connections they make become that more fruitful. The BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum provides a great platform for those companies to gain the tools they need to do just that."
