Cleantech Group, Silicon Valley Bank, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati are excited to host a Power Breakfast focused on European corporate innovation opportunities.

Europe has been the pioneer in terms of policy-setting and committing to the sustainability agenda.

Europe’s corporations and industrial giants have caught the ‘’open innovation” bug and are actively scouting the world for innovation companies to partner with, to invest in, to augment their R&D and to bring in new ideas that are unlikely to come from within old, staid industries. Many have team members in the Valley.

Despite sluggish economic conditions and forecasts, markets for innovations, technologies and services that improve Europe’s resource efficiency and sustainability are on a growth trajectory.

At this invite-only breakfast session, we invite Bay Area innovation companies to come explore the European corporate opportunity, to meet some of the US representatives of many of the leading European corporates interested in US innovation, and to learn more about the state of European markets.

We invite CEOs and senior executives of emerging companies to request an invitation and join us in September! Preference will be given to companies that have claimed and updated their i3 profile.

* Invitations will be sent on a rolling basis
