This event marks the first ever Clean Energy Connections-University panel, a new initiative from the students that work for the folks that bring you Clean Energy Connections. These events will bring student groups together with professionals in the clean energy industry to provoke discussion on technology and entrepreneurship.
This panel will showcase three cleantech startups, each at different stages of development. Three founders will discuss the highlights and hurdles of starting up a business in this competitive industry in New York City. They will talk about what inspired them to invest their lives into clean technology businesses. The panel will also discuss what the future holds for the cleantech industry in the light of recent changes in regional and global policies in response to Climate Change. Finally, panelists will provide advice on starting your own business and on landing a job in the industry before and after graduation.
The discussion is a featured event of Solar One and NYC ACRE’s cleantech panel discussion series, Clean Energy Connections. Follow our ongoing online discussion at tagboard.com/CleanNRGx
