There will also be curated presentations from venture-backed businesses that are raising capital and seeking corporate partners, and that offer compelling answers to the questions above.
If you’d like to speak or present, please contact the conference Chair, Tom Whitehouse (GCV Contributing Editor and Chairman of the London Environmental Investment Forum). We are very keen to invite non-Houstonian corporate VCs and their portfolio companies and to hear perspectives on energy from outside the traditional energy domain.
This conference is for bona fide venture investors and start-ups. Please contact us to register your interest to attend.
Service providers with an interest in sponsoring the conference should also contact Tom Whitehouse.
The Texan capital has had a torrid time of late, but the recovery has begun. Please come and join GCV as we celebrate and champion the resilience and talent of the Texan venture and innovation industry.
