Celebrating its 10th anniversary last year, the UK’s largest cleantech member organisation is growing and expanding its reach well beyond Cambridge
Cambridge Cleantech started as a hub for Cambridge-based innovators – but fairly soon expanded its vision and activities. Members to the network now range from start-ups with smart ideas in sustainable energy, water and waste, to multinational conglomerates working to reduce their environmental impact. Through its events, resources, initiatives and networks it connects innovators, corporates, academics, SMEs and investors and runs a number of special interest groups – around topics such as sustainable smart homes, low carbon vehicles to finance and circular economy.
Cleantech Venture Day – held on 18-19 May, in London and online – promises to help accelerate the race to a net zero economy by giving climate-positive businesses the chance to pitch to over 60 cleantech-focused investors. The team expect at least 200 people from around the globe to attend the two-day event which will bring together innovative cleantech companies with experienced fund managers, business angels and corporate investors.
