PriceEvent Price£0 - £10
Join Women of Wearables for another monthly webinar, this time our focus will be on Sustainability and CleanTech!
Companies across a variety of sectors (solar, wind, ethanol, biomass, geothermal, water purification, electric vehicles, energy storage) are seeking to leverage the power of technology by providing better solutions for modern world’s energy demands, advancing sustainability, harnessing renewable energy sources and reducing the carbon footprint.
According to the Quarterly Venture Data Review by Ctg’s monitor service, CleanTech investments surged above $35 billion in 2019, maintaining the 5-year growth trend.
We gathered a group of experts, startup founders and investors to discuss the state of CleanTech, what it’s like to build a sustainable 'green' business, to hear investor’s perspective on investing in CleanTech and Sustainability and go through some of the challenges these industries are facing.
Join us virtually and make sure to prepare your questions for our panelists! Those who have registered for the webinar will receive a link for a video call two days prior to the event.
We hope you can join us!
