SVC is pleased to announce our upcoming Cleantech Showcase Presented by NYSERDA in NYC on March 31st. This showcase will feature up to 8 top innovators powering clean energy solutions, galvanize clean energy-interested investors from around the country, and provide education for all attending Cleantech investors and pitching entrepreneurs. Applications for the NYSERDA CleanTech Showcase are now open (click ‘Apply Now’ button below)! Applications for this event will close on February 14th. We anticipate being able to notify pitch finalists by the week of March 9th.

Cleantech entrepreneurs across all geographies are invited to apply to pitch, with priority given to ventures based in the New York area. All SVC Members can nominate companies for consideration up until February 7th. If you wish to nominate a company, complete this short form. Please note companies still need to apply directly through our SVC online platform. We will reach out to nominated entrepreneurs if we do not receive their application directly before the 14th.

SVC will also be hosting a Summit following the Showcase in NYC for all of our members to attend. Please stay tuned for more updates and exciting announcements from SVC regarding the event. It will be a great opportunity to convene and engage with each other in the Spring in New York!
