Investment Pitch Competition (July 18 AM)
The Seventh Annual New Energy Symposium will again feature some of the hottest emerging cleantech startups competing for the opportunity to pitch to a panel of regional and national VCs, angels, private equity investors, corporate VCs, investment bankers, and government executives at the Investment Pitch Competition.
The Investment Pitch Competition, which is done in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is based on the format of NREL's annual Industry Growth Forum; the nation's premier cleantech startup pitch event.

The top three presentations, selected by the investor judges, receive awards and $1,500 cash to cover their travel to the NREL Industry Growth Forum in the fall.
