Environmental Entrepreneurs: Local Companies Leading the Way to a Low-Carbon Economy
ABOUT THE EVENT
Join us for a timely forum on clean technologies that can ultimately reduce greenhouse gas regulations. As several local Austin companies create technologies that cut greenhouse gas emissions, we will explore why entrepreneurs need to link their plans for growth with cleantech. Come learn from local experts and business leaders about the tools available to get more companies to contribute to a lower carbon economy and reduce climate change through their technology and services.
