Clean Tech Open: Pacific NW Regional Awards Gala

Info and registration here.

You are cordially invited to attend the Pacific Northwest Regional Awards Gala for the Cleantech Open. Three companies sporting the boldest cleantech ideas, devised by some of the Northwest’s brightest entrepreneurs, will be announced as regional finalists to compete against six companies from California and three companies from the Rocky Mountain Region for a large prize package. These three finalists will also receive a regional prize package consisting of both cash and in-kind services to assist them in moving their businesses forward.

This is the final event for the inaugural year of the Cleantech Open in the Pacific Northwest Region. Please join us at Seattle’s beautiful ACT Theatre to support our local entreprenuers and foster an environment where green jobs can grow.
