Fortunately, the clean technology industry is a job creator. In 2015, solar energy produced more jobs than oil and natural gas extraction for the first time and the clean technology industry employed over 8 million people globally, an annual increase of over 5%.
So what’s the problem? We’ve learned the current venture capital model doesn’t fit many early-stage clean technology companies. The industry needs new types of investors to take the lead: the mission-driven investor.

The E-Capital investment forum is a private, invitation-only
educational and networking experience for mission-driven investors.
The Innovation Expo features cutting-edge clean

participating in the Innovation Expo will be
invited to meet with a select group of
