2013 Cleantech Symposium

 About:

  Financing for emerging clean technology has changed drastically over the last few years as venture capital has contracted and government subsidies are in a state of fluctuation. We are interested in what attorneys and businesses are doing to obtain and structure financing for clean energy and other emerging clean technologies to grow in a climate of uncertainty.
