GLO SHO: Global Cleantech Showcase

October 6, 2014 - October 7, 2014

This summit will attract a global audience of entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, industry executives, utility executives, and policy makers. Last year’s inaugural event attracted over 400 participants, and had 70 speakers from more than 20 nations. Participants in the 2013 Global Showcase saw entrepreneurs presenting their innovative businesses, expert panels debating current topics in their respective fields, and policy leaders describing their vision for the future. GloSho’14 is the signature event of LACI’s Global Innovation Network (GIN), which is a new transnational initiative, designed to foster global innovation and commercialization in the cleantech sector. The primary focus of this year’s event is linking up investors with entrepreneurs. Please see the attached flyer for more details.
