February 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
To address climate change and cut GHG emissions, we need solutions and we need to implement them now.
Venture For ClimateTech, a new global non-profit venture studio + accelerator for climate tech innovators, is addressing the gap in support and funding for early-stage innovations that exists today.
Join us for a virtual info session with Venture For ClimateTech Senior Manager, Chante Harris, and CEOs from successful climate tech companies that have gone through similar accelerator programs.
Among our speakers is Dr. Gabriel Rodriguez-Calero, CEO & Co-Founder of Ecolectro, a NEXUS-NY graduate developing a membrane for an alkaline fuel cell that has the potential to substantially reduce fuel cell costs by eliminating the need for expensive precious metal catalysts, unlocking the hydrogen economy.
Attendees will learn:
- How participation in a program like Venture For ClimateTech helped climate tech innovators connect with the funding, training, and resources necessary to launch their companies.
- How to assess if Venture For ClimateTech is right for you, and the steps to apply for the virtual program’s inaugural cohort.
This is a virtual event. Zoom details will be shared via email with all registrants prior to the event.
