Introduction

Energy Finance for Growth is a world-class executive programme for entrepreneurs, investors, corporate leaders and policy makers from across Europe, who are striving to deliver a low-carbon environmental and economic revolution.

Building on a solid five-year track record of “Clean Energy Entrepreneurship and Investment” workshops in Edinburgh and Valencia, Energy Finance for Growth comes to London on 6th of January 2015, delivered by Professor Joe Lassiteralong with thought-leaders from industry and the investor community.

Lassiter is the Senator John Heinz Professor of Management Practice in Environmental Management Harvard Business School; and Faculty Chair of the Harvard Innovation Lab.

This is not a large conference, but a dynamic interchange between entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders.

The core workshop content will be interactive and engaging sessions with two Harvard Business School case studies: TerraPower (next-generation nuclear) and Carbon Engineering (industrial scale capture of CO2 from ambient air).

The core workshop outcomes are for participants to:

  • Learn lessons from experienced entrepreneurs, investors and corporate innovators in a peer-to-peer setting;
  • Strike deals with new: customers, partners, clients or investors;
  • Find a supportive environment to work “on” instead of “in” your business;
  • Progress your journey of global growth and dominance in your chosen market niche.
