We're excited to deliver, with Pillsbury Winthrop, the third annual Quarterly Venture Breakfast Series. Our July session will be focusing on 'The Current State of the CleanTech Bubble'.
After rising to #2 in 2008 in the PwC Money Tree, cleantech investing plummeted 75% in Q1'09 to #4 in the industry rankings, after Software, Biotech, and Med Devices. Many of the cleantech deals that required over $50M in venture financing and hundreds of millions in project finance are either dead or pursuing new strategies that are more capital efficient and require less debt. Scores of companies are applying for government funds to supplement their equity base. Come listen to and quiz our panel of experts to see if the cleantech bubble has burst or if this is simply the pause that refreshes the industry.
