Clean Tech Open
As many of you know, because of comments made on Twitter, I attended an the Clean Tech Open Event in Palo Alto, CA. Joining me was Mark and his wife Mary. The event was a showcase for new clean technologies that are commercially viable and progressing in expansion. To understand what Clean Tech Open is I brought in a description from their website.
"The Clean Tech Open is the world's leading clean tech business competition:
70 Semifinalists in 3 regions attend the Clean Tech Open Accelerator world class business training program, followed by two months of intensive mentoring.
12 Regional Winners each leave with cash/services worth at least $50,000 ... and meet in Silicon Valley, California for the National Finals.
One National Winner flies home with cash/services worth an additional $250,000.
That totals over $1 million in prizes, press exposure, access to capital, and extensive help in building your clean tech business.
