"Energy Entrepreneurship"
February 23, 2011, 3:00-7:00 pm

 

This seminar focused on understanding the nature of energy-related entrepreneurial ventures.  The energy business historically has been organized around large-scale, capital-intensive, and highly regulated efforts -- not typically the domain of innovators and entrepreneurs. However, the market environment is changing fast, and the need and opportunity for energy entrepreneurs has never been greater.

 

In this seminar, participants discussed the current energy venture landscape, the unique opportunities and challenges of growing energy-related ventures, and promising areas for entrepreneurial growth and development.
