Josh Green to Keynote Cleantech Industry Awards

Josh Green will address raising capital in tight markets and the necessity of innovation at the upcoming Colorado Cleantech Industry Awards Celebration Oct. 22 at the Sheridan in downtown Denver. 

Green is a venture capitalist and general partner with Silicon Valley firm Mohr Davidow Ventures. His keynote presentation is titled, “Toward an Optimistic Cleantech Future.” 

In a 25-year career, Green has acted as advisor to some of Silicon Valley’s legendary startups in the computer, Internet, telecommunications, biotech and medical device industries. His breadth of knowledge makes him uniquely qualified for cleantech, which spans multiple industries. 

“While some within the industry may feel beaten down at the moment, there is still a need for innovation in the creation, distribution and use of energy. Innovation is going to find its way,” Green said in a recent news release from CCIA. “History shows us that it is during the challenging points in the cycle where brilliant, fundamental technology breakthroughs happen.” 

With the challenges the industry has faced in the past year, Green's speech about how to gain industry strength through innovation is sure to draw attention.
