WCS Talks Virtual Event Series

WCS Talks kicks off this year as a series of virtual TED-style events featuring the brightest minds and most inspiring stories of the clean economy metamorphosis occurring all over the world. The series features both women and men from a variety of sectors sharing their perspectives and challenging our assumptions.

Our startup pitch competition is the only one in the U.S. focused on spotlighting companies led by women, either as CEOs or in the C-suite. Women from six companies are selected from hundreds of applications to pitch their innovative cleantech or sustainable-focused business idea to a panel of industry leaders. Winners will enjoy a large prize pool to continue growing their business and are announced the day of the event.
