Entrepreneurs invited to pitch clean energy ideas

July 13, 2017

Startup innovators from around the country have the opportunity to exhibit their ideas and win $10,000 during the Catalysts of the Climate Economy national innovation summit in Burlington, Vermont, Sept. 6-8. Innovators in the climate economy are encouraged to enter a contest that will result in five competitors pitching their ideas to a panel of judges, with the winning idea garnering the top prize. Entries for Round 1 of the competition – where innovators tweet their formula/idea on improving the climate economy – must be received by July 30th. A select number of entries will be invited to present their ideas during the conference, where all attendees will vote on the top five startup ideas. Produced by the Vermont Council on Rural Development, the conference will bring together participants in the climate economy to explore the next stage of economic development in a low-carbon future.
