2018 Awards & Innovation Showcase

Join the Cleantech Open West 2018 Awards & Innovation Showcase, which will highlight and celebrate the early-stage cleantech startups emerging at the horizon of cleantech innovation across California and the West.

This year, Cleantech Open West will align their capstone event in the West with VERGE 18.  Like Cleantech Open, VERGE 18 is dedicated to building the sustainable economy of the future through the creation of a value-creating community of committed professionals. 

The Cleantech Open West 2018 Awards & Innovation Showcase is the culmination of our seven-month cleantech accelerator program.  On the 18th, they will bring together an audience of cleantech entrepreneurs, investors, corporate sponsors, and university and government partners to showcase and award the best of the region's early-stage cleantech ventures.
Spend the day meeting the startups and connecting with members of the Cleantech Open West community, including investors, corporates, and peers in their growing cleantech commercialization support ecosystem. Come build your network and be inspired!
