2015 Clean Energy Challenge – Today!
Today, the Clean Energy Trust, co-founded by Michael Polsky and Nicholas Pritzker, presents the 5th annual Clean Energy Challenge! The event, which counts Exelon, Boeing, Accenture, American Electric Power, ComEd, Invenergy LLC, and Wells Fargo among its sponsors, is being held in Chicago at Venue SIX10. Startup pitches, thought leadership, sponsor engagement, networking, live entertainment, and much more are scheduled throughout the day. We’re especially looking forward to an address from Nancy Pfund, Managing Partner at DBL Investors.
The competition’s finalists include wind generator Accio Energy, Power-over-Ethernet platform Igor, human hybrid vehicle designer Rahtmobile, and power cell developer Atlas Energy Systems, along with several others. Thanks to many of the aforementioned sponsors, the Trust is awarding up to $1 million in prizes this year. Mintz Levin is in attendance and excited to see who takes the top awards!
