Don’t miss this must-attend event to join the conversation, learn what lies ahead, and gain insights into the current state of the clean technology industry. Contrary to the January 5th CBS 60 Minutes story on clean technology, it is a critical time for this industry. Infact, cleantech is more important than ever before. With the growing impact of our population on the planet, the continued growth and support of cleantech is essential.

Cleantech represents new technologies and business models that empower us to use natural resources more productively, and responsibly. To do more with less – less energy, less water, less waste.  If you watched the 60 minutes story, The Cleantech Crash, you might think that all cleantech companies have failed. This is not true. Yes, companies failed, but all emerging markets are volatile, and 75% of all startups fail.

While some VCs have indeed lost money, others are receiving returns, and still others are raising new funds. Large companies are now actively investing in cleantech to drive growth and competitive advantage, differentiation, and to further their sustainability goals. The Northwest Energy Angels is committed to continuing our focus and investment in this key sector.
