People may think cleantech investors are largely based in San Francisco, are primarily venture capitalists, and that they are shy to invest in 2020.
But cleantech entrepreneurs and companies can find a variety of investors focused on different growth stages across the country, including angel investors, accelerators, seed-to-late stage VCs, corporate VC arms, impact investors, commercial banks, green banks, project finance, private equity and private credit. And, they will find that these investors have plenty of appetite to invest in 2020.
If you know what types of debt and equity are available at each stage of a startup’s growth and you know the 2-3 things that matter most to those investors, you can be far better positioned to secure the right type of capital with the right type of partner(s) at the right time – resulting in more alignment along the way and a greater chance for success.
Join us for a Virtual Happy Hour with Orion Energy Partners and other cleantech investors from coast-to-coast on June 25, 2020 at 5pm PT / 8pm ET.
About the WCS happy hour
It is a weekly virtual gathering of the women and men in the cleantech and sustainability space.
This social event runs for about an hour and includes a short presentation from the event co-host to give a perspective on the given topic.
Following the presentations, attendees are divided into breakout rooms which are facilitated by both WCS and the co-host. Participants are given the opportunity to network and meet new peers by introducing themselves one by one and providing their digital cards in the chat group. The breakout session also includes a discussion regarding the topic and the WCS facilitator will report back with the salient points to the rest of the virtual happy hour group.
After the short recap, the attendees will move on to two or more breakout sessions. Attendees are encouraged to continue their discussions after the event.
