Future Energy Boston at MIT

You must purchase tickets on Eventbrite ($20/$30): http://futureenergyboston.eventbrite.com/


Future Energy is a series of events that connects entrepreneurs, researchers, and private investors in the energy and clean-tech industries to develop and commercialize radical solutions to the world’s energy challenges.

The Investor Panelists:

Gail GreenwaldWillem RensinkBilal Zuberi

 

Startup Pitches:

  1. Ahmed Farouk - RET Inc.
  2. Andrew Radin - PolymerGreen
  3. Fraser Seymour - Ionova Technologies, Inc.
  4. Ian McKay - Open Water Power
  5. Ganesh Nakhawa - SmartPwrNet
  6. Drew Hession-Kunz - Gravitas Energy Storage
  7. Bal Mukund Dhar - Agira Inc.

The format at Future Energy is identical to our typical Investor Feedback Forum events, but all the startups and investors are in energy technology.

 

The Problem

  1. Step change in Energy demand – In coming decades, the world will need huge amounts of energy to support population and economic growth and improve standards of living. We expect the global demand for energy will double by 2050.
  2. Supply will struggle to keep pace – Energy supply from all sources will struggle to keep up with demand. There will be continued dependence on fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal and we will also need rapid growth in renewables.
  3. Environmental stresses are increasing – Energy needs to be produced in environmentally and socially responsible ways. Environmental stresses from producing and using energy are increasing. There is an urgent need for low carbon technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Solution

  • Conventional oil and gas exploration, recovery, and extraction
  • Non-conventional oil and gas
  • Alternative and renewable energy (solar, wind, hydrogen, biofuels, geothermal, etc.)
  • Renewable and bio-based chemicals
  • Mobility / smart mobility
  • Energy efficiency / smart grid
  • Energy finance and trading


Agenda

  • 6:30pm – Pizza, networking and introductions
  • 6:45pm – Investor Feedback Forum – 8 energy and cleantech startups pitch to an investor panel; the panel provides actionable advice for each presentation
  • 8:15pm – Pitch Showdown - audience voting via Twitter; winners announced and prizes awarded
