A Presentation by Kim Eva Van Keymeulen
Many Bay Area entrepreneurs are taking on the challenges of global climate change. Each year some of the best local clean tech entrepreneurs look to the Cleantech Open to help them refine their business plans, sell their concept to investors and customers, and build a successful clean tech enterprise. The Cleantech Open has grown into a global accelerator fo r clean tech start-ups and is embarking on their 10th year. Kim Eva Van Keymeulen is the Major Metro Director for the Bay Area and the Sustainability Co-Chair for the Bay Area and the Western Region. Kim will tell us the inspiring Cleantech Open story. Kim has also invited some Bay Area start-up alumni of the Cleantech Open to join her to talk about their businesses and their experience in the Cleantech Open. So far, Hobin Kim (with Seevider), Jinal Sampat (with Garden Pipe), and Robert Chang and Chaitanya Sharma (with Verdigris Technologies) have confirmed that they will join her for this presentation and discussion with the audience.
