Cleantech Entrepreneurship Energizer

Clean technology is key to reaching our climate and energy transition goals and has the potential to touch every sector of our economy. Start-ups drive innovation in this industry, yet many cleantech entrepreneurs face significant challenges as they work to develop new technologies and create commercially viable businesses.

The Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster and Joules Accelerator are teaming up to host a Cleantech Entrepreneurship Energizer event on March 2, 2023 at American Underground. This event will bring together a dynamic group of cleantech entrepreneurs, industry leaders, funders, government officials, and technology experts to discuss what must be done to identify, advise, deploy, and adopt cleantech innovations. Attendees will make new network connections, participate in some facilitated discussion, and hear brief technology pitches from the Joules Accelerator Cohort 11 cleantech start-ups.

Join us to be part of advancing the discussion about how we can bolster our cleantech ecosystem, energize cleantech entrepreneurship, and create a more sustainable future for economies here in North Carolina around the world.

Joey Barrick, Associate, SJF Ventures
