Finance Special Interest Group
It’s not always easy to find the funding and investment you need to grow your cleantech venture. Our Finance special interest group gathers together investors, funding experts and successful scale-up companies so you can hear about new funds, meet the right people, and hone your pitching skills.
This group is led by Hugh Parnell (Chairman, Cambridge Cleantech) and supported by Prof Aled Jones (Director, Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin), Mark Prince (Director, KPMG) and Martin Clapson (Managing Partner, Price Bailey).
Contact Auriane at email@example.com if you wish to take part in this Special Interest Group.
