Cleantech making waves across the border
Our cleantech practice just returned from the Cleantech Forum San Francisco, “From Data to Impact: How Technology will Drive the Cleantech Economy”.
After months of hard work and preparation, four of our start-up clients pitched their innovation in the Entrepreneur Showcase. CEOs were chosen to compete in this showcase from across the cleantech spectrum. It gave our cleantech companies got some great exposure to an audience of investors and networked with other stakeholders.
These companies got to experience the largest and longest-running annual gathering of global leaders in the cleantech industry. Our cleantech practice lead, Tom Rand noted, “MaRS has been patiently delivering interesting companies to the San Fran area and this year I felt a real breakthrough for MaRS – our credibility and visibility to the VC community kicked up a notch and I can now say we’ve got their attention!”
The Cleantech Forum San Francisco brings together the world’s leading corporate executives, investors, start-ups and policy makers and allows them to explore the growing opportunities and significant challenges that the industry is facing.
MaRS is proud of each company’s performance at the Forum and we encourage you to keep an eye out for these up-and-comers who are making waves in the VC world!
