We are overcapacity - thank you so much! First come first serve seating!
Raising capital for climatetech is different than the standard venture backed route. We’re bringing together all parts of the capital stack — and giving you a chance to pitch your startup.
We are excited to host a panel of experts representing all diversity of climate tech capital including founders like Apoorv Bhargava, CEO and Founder of Weavegrid, Laureen Meroueh, CEO and Founder of Hertha Metals, David Schurman, CTO and Founder of Perennial to Chase Little, Venture Debt at Mercury, to Venture investors of leading climate startups, Vivien Ho, Partner at Pear VC. We’ll start with a panel moderated by Helena Merk, CEO & Founder of Streamline.
After the panel, select founders will have the opportunity to describe what they’re working on and panelists will each advise how their piece of the capital stack plays a role.
We will also have delicious snacks and refreshments while the attendees mingle after breakout.
Streamline helps climate tech companies write 10x faster grants, permits, RPFs, EIRs, and more. They are officially launching on Earth Day but already working with leading climate tech companies like Perennial, Noya, Project Vesta, and Windborne.
