Clean Tech Events This Week: MIT & HBS in California


If you’re looking for Clean Tech events, check out the CleanTechies Calendar with hundreds of events and conferences all around the world – from renewable energy to green building to electric vehicles. If you’re looking for something to do this evening – and you happen to be close to Mountain View – I suggest, you attend “Starting a Cleantech Business” – an event organized by  the MIT Club and the HBS Association of Northern California. Even if you’re not interested in starting your own business, you might still want to hear the panelists speak: Matt Goldman, Co-founder and President Sustainable Spaces,  Alex Kinnier, Partner at Khosla Ventures, Deborah Magid, Director, Software Strategy, IBM Venture Capital Group, and Scott Newcomb, CEO Virgance. They will highlight pathways into new clean tech careers, explain how to start new clean tech businesses and explore the trends and best practices in transitioning to green business operations.

There are two more events this week, namely on Saturday, that have a number of leading CleanTech experts lined up. The OPENforum is a national conference that is held for the sixth time this year. This year’s theme is “Winning Tomorrow,” and seeks “to arm participants with insights, knowledge, and relationships to help them persevere during these challenging times and to prepare for a successful career ahead,” according to the organizers. The one-day conference has 12 panels featuring over fifty top entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and business leaders across three industry tracks: Technology & Media, Cleantech & Global Affairs. You can register at $55 online and at $90 on-site.
