Wisconsin Cleantech Network Forum
Location: Wisconsin Energy Institute (1552 University Avenue, Madison)
Justin Kaster, founder and executive director for Midwest Cleantech Open, will discuss near-term opportunities for emerging businesses and other market participants including investors at the April 24 meeting of the Cleantech Network forum.
Kaster will discuss an overview of Cleantech Open’s national accelerator program; which is taking applications through May 1, as well as near-term opportunities for both emerging companies and investors and industry trends both in the Midwest and nationally.
Kaster, a member of the national executive team for Cleantech Open, has helped to expand the ways Cleantech Open works with emerging businesses in all 50 states and internationally. A key component to the growth is the U.S. Accelerator program, the largest in the world of its kind, having graduated more than 800 companies that have gone on to raise $1 billion in funding.
The Wisconsin Cleantech forums focus on the needs and challenges faced by entrepreneurs and others working in Wisconsin’s clean technology sectors. That includes power systems, controls, alternative fuels and more. Each program will include a presentation, audience Q&A and networking.
The forum is produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council in cooperation with the Mid-West Energy Research Consortium, Godfrey & Kahn and Kremer Ventures.
