The National Renewable Energy Laboratory will present the 27th Industry Growth Forum October 28 - 29, 2014

The upcoming 27th Annual Industry Growth Forum will feature presentations from 30 emerging clean energy companies, provocative panels led by thought leaders, one-on-one meetings, and organized networking opportunities. Since the Forum began, it has grown to be the perfect venue for growing companies to prepare, refine, and present their businesses to a wide range of investors. Each year, the best presenters are awarded cash prizes and commercialization services from NREL. This focus on clean energy innovation is having an impact on the industry—since 2003, the presenting prototype, pre-commercial, and expanding cleantech companies who have presented have collectively raised more than $5 billion in growth financing.

We find the NREL Forum to be one of the most 'entrepreneur-friendly' in the sector. While there is significant rigor to the selection and mentoring process, there is also recognition of the collaborative nature of the relationship between companies and investors.
