Calling all green tech innovators and investors: BusinessGreen launches third annual Technology and Investment Forum

BusinessGreen once again teams up with Innovate UK and Investment Week to deliver latest clean and sustainable technology pitch event

BusinessGreen is today inviting entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors from across the green economy to join us at the third annual BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum.

Hosted in association with Innovate UK and Investment Week, this year's BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum will take place at the Future Cities Catapult in London on the morning of April 25th.

The half-day session will bring together leading clean tech and sustainable technology firms and investors to discuss current green investment and technology trends, and share potential shared opportunities.

The Forum centres on a rapid-fire pitching session where executives from up to 20 of the UK's top early stage clean tech firms will deliver four minute presentations to an audience of green investors and their peers.

The event will also feature extensive networking opportunities and a panel debate where leading investors will provide insight into what makes an aspiring clean tech firm stand out for them.

Spaces for the Forum are limited, and BusinessGreen is today calling on clean tech and sustainability companies and investors to register their interest in attending the invite-only event.

The event is designed to support clean tech and sustainable technology companies or developers that are either actively seeking investment or approaching an investment-ready stage in their development. Each of the attending firms will get the opportunity to deliver a four minute presentation on their technology and business to an audience of their peers and investors.

"The BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum is now in its third year and has established a fantastic track record of connecting exciting clean tech start-ups and early stage firms with credible investors," said BusinessGreen editor-in-chief James Murray. "We'd urge all green technology firms who are seeking investment to register their interest in the event and all investors who are keen to catalyse the development of this most important and rewarding of sectors to do likewise."

His comments were echoed by Christian Inglis, senior innovation lead at Innovate UK, who said this year's forum was set to build on its track record of connecting the clean tech and sustainable technology entrepreneur and investor community.

"Part of Innovate UK's mission is to help support innovative clean tech and sustainable technology firms scale up and tackle global challenges," he said. "The BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum can help connect investors and entrepreneurs in a way that can help accelerate the roll out of clean technologies, and catalyse new connections between the two communities."

To register your interest in attending the BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum please visit our new event website.

Firms and investors registering their interest in the event are also invited to submit an entry to this year's BusinessGreen Leaders Awards.
