Clean Energy Venture Summit Calling Entrepreneurs

The fourth annual Clean Energy Venture Summit (CEVS) is inviting entrepreneurs from across the country to present their businesses for funding. The summit (to be held September 29-30 in Austin, TX) is among the most prolific resources of its kind, generating millions of dollars in start-up revenue. Emerging clean-tech companies that are selected to present to investors average $300,000 up to $1 million if received funding.

CEVS is a partnership between The Austin Technology Incubator and Austin Energy. The summit will feature a competition of 20 early stage clean energy companies in seven focus areas, including: energy management; building-integrated energy efficiency technologies; smart appliances; energy information systems; smart resource management (electricity, water, gas and waste); distributed energy storage; and distributed fueling for transportation. Summit judges will evaluate entries based on innovation, overall market opportunity, stage of development, intellectual property position, resource requirements, environmental impact and potential return on investment.

In addition to connecting entrepreneurs and investors, the Clean Energy Venture Summit provides a unique networking opportunity for companies in the smart grid and smart building arenas. The summit includes a half-day entrepreneur workshop featuring presentations and panel discussions from investors, IP attorneys and other industry experts. Entrepreneurs have the opportunity to network with industry peers, investors and a range of clean energy leaders.
