BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum: Last chance to register

Latest virtual clean tech pitch event to take place tomorrow morning, bringing together some of the UK's most innovative start ups and investors

Investors and interested parties have just a few hours left to sign up to attend tomorrow's BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum and hear from 15 of the UK's most exciting clean tech start ups.

Hosted in association with Innovate UK, the event will be delivered through a virtual platform on the morning of Wednesday 12th May and will bring together scores of top green business entrepreneurs and investors.

Fifteen clean tech start ups working in fields ranging from smart grids and biotech to renewables and sustainable agriculture will provide four minute speed pitches and will be able to then network with a number of leading green investors. A number of places remain available for clean tech investors interested in hearing from leading green entrepreneurs about their expansion plans.

"The BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum is now in its sixth year and it is always an inspiring and rewarding event, with a great track record of connecting exciting start-ups with the investors and partners that can help them execute on their expansion plans," said BusinessGreen editor James Murray. "As ever we'll hear from innovative clean tech firms at various stages of development, as well as those investors looking to tap into the huge opportunities offered by the green technology revolution."

The virtual event will feature an opening address from Innovate UK, a panel discussion with some top green investors on what they are looking for from a successful pitch, and a series of four minute pitches from leading green entrepreneurs, all of which will be available on demand after the event.

As with previous Technology and Investment Forums that have been held in person, the virtual platform will allow for questions and answers on the various presentations and networking between all delegates.

Investors can register their attendance free of charge through the event website.
