Looking For A Green VC? Check Out SDForum Quarterly Venture Breakfast

Clear your calendar! This Tuesday, July 8th, The SDForum, a non profit specializing in emerging technologies, will be holding a breakfast with a focus on Cleantech

Everyone’s talking about clean technology and a new wave of investments rolling in to fund companies in this sector. Where’s the truth and where’s the fiction? Will the funding come from angel investors, venture capitalists or project finance? And what does this mean for startups? Steve Bengston will present an overview of the investments in the sector and trends by technology within the industry (solar, biofuels, energy..) and then our veteran VC panel will discuss and debate where they feel the opportunities are and what the trends are going forward.

The breakfast, a quarterly event, will be held at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP in Palo Alto.

Speakers will include Peter Nieh, Managing Director, Lightspeed Venture Partners.; Matthew Trevithick, Partner, Venrock; Steve Bengston, PriceWaterhouseCoopers; David J. Blumberg, Blumberg Capital; Sylvia Burks, Partner, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP and Steve Eichenlaub, Managing Director, Intel Capital.

If you’re an Ecopreneur in the Cleantech space, this might just be the place to network with leaders in the field.
