Upcoming Program

NYC CleanTech May 22, 2012

Don’t miss this opportunity to talk cleantech with industry insiders and discover exciting prospects for investment and collaboration. Our keynote speaker is Jim LoGerfo of Earthrise Capital, a venture fund investing in emerging energy, power, and water technologies, primarily in North America.

PLUS You are invited to an exclusive session, “What an Angel Investor Considers Before Making an Investment” with angel investor Dr. Greg Olsen at 4 p.m. We can accommodate a maximum of 50 founders of early-stage cleantech companies on a first-come-first-served basis.

Presenting companies:

OwnEnergy, Inc. is the leading developer of mid-size, locally-owned wind farms, often referred to as community wind projects. The company forms long-term partnerships with landowners and local developers across the United States to jointly develop utility-scale wind projects that help create local jobs, spur economic growth, and provide communities with clean, renewable sources of energy that they can call their own. OwnEnergy is leading the shift toward locally-owned wind projects by leveraging its resources, networks, and industry know-how to guide and support its local partners through the complex process of developing a successful wind farm.

ElectroCell Technologies, Inc. (ECT) provides liquid waste treatment services to industry and agriculture. ECT’s patented bioelectric technology destroys organic cells in liquid waste using precisely managed electrical pulses. All liquid waste treatment processes, from the largest industrial treatment plants to the reuse of manure on a family farm, ultimately rely on microbiology to break down organic wastes into benign or beneficial material. By opening organic cells with breakthrough efficiency, ECT’s technology dramatically accelerates the breakdown of organic compounds in a wide range of waste streams. In doing so, ECT’s technology can replace or enhance many traditional waste treatment processes.

Angstron Technologies has successfully developed high-heat conductive graphene film (AGF) that is significantly superior to that of graphite and metals. Angstron Tech aims to produce graphene-enabled thermal interface materials (TIMs), including thermal grease, thermally conductive adhesives, and thermally conductive rubbers. The planned production will entail a capital-light and high-margin approach, with a business model that can potentially generate sizable revenues at a fast pace. The potential uses of graphene film and TIMs encompass a broad range of commercial and industrial applications, including electronic devices, batteries and energy storage systems, and manufacturing processes and products that are improved by heat spreading solutions.
