Cleantech growth journey: third annual CEO retreat

  • Share

The Global Cleantech Center is pleased to offer this perspective on the insights shared in our third annual Cleantech Growth Journey CEO Retreat.

The retreat convened the CEOs of growth companies from across the cleantech spectrum to share peer-to-peer perspectives on the leadership challenges of building successful companies in today’s investment and commercial landscape.

While no two cleantech companies are alike, common ground can be found in the issues related to securing financing, establishing sustainable partnerships, expanding into new markets and acquiring new customers.

Cleantech innovators were joined by leading corporate executives, financiers, government representatives and business advisors, who brought valuable insights into global cleantech market dynamics and shared the lessons learned from engaging with emerging cleantech companies as customers and partners.

Our goal in convening the annual retreat is to contribute to finding solutions to our common challenges and to advance the cleantech agenda. We hope that sharing the participant perspectives and actionable insights arising from this discussion will help to foster creative new approaches and further discussion on how to achieve the next stage of industry growth.

EY’s Global Cleantech Center extends special thanks to the retreat sponsors — Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Goodwin Procter, Heidrick & Struggles, Silicon Valley Bank and Steelcase — as well as to The Aspen Institute’s Energy and Environment Program, our supporting organization, for their active support and participation in the event.
