"Fostering Innovation & Investment Opportunities in Clean Technologies"
Emerging growth companies delivering clean-tech products and services represent the next big wave of technology innovation. Applied Materials, GE, Intel, Siemens, and Wal-Mart are just some of the multinationals joining forces with emerging growth companies that are literally reshaping the economic landscape. Over the last eight years, venture investments in the sector have increased from less than 1 percent of total venture investments to more than 10 percent. Clean-energy investing in the U.S. reached $2.7 billion alone in 2007. Many clean technologies are experiencing double-digit annual growth rates.

Savvy investors have now realized the opportunity to capitalize on solutions that serve the needs of industry, government, and society with innovative technologies that compete on price and performance while reducing pollution, waste, and resource use. Come join the drivers of this new economy -- clean-tech investors, entrepreneurs, multinational corporations, policy makers, and others that are leading the way.

The Clean Tech Investor Summit, co-produced by International Business Forum and Clean Edge, and chaired by Technology Partners’ Ira Ehrenpreis, is the premier clean-tech investment and innovation event. Held each winter in Palm Springs, CA, the event brings together leading clean-tech investors, Fortune 500 executives, entrepreneurs, and service providers for two days of high-level presentations, conversations, and networking. The 5th Annual Clean-Tech Investor Summit is scheduled for January 21-22, 2009. Last year’s Summit sold out, so reserve your place now.

Come join us in January 2009 for our 5th Annual Clean-Tech Investor Summit.
