This Friday, July 20, 2012 is the final deadline for renewable energy and energy efficiency technology small businesses to apply to present at the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Industry Growth Forum, which will be held October 23-24, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.

NREL’s Industry Growth Forum offers a venue for growing companies to prepare, refine, and present their businesses to a wide range of investors. Collectively, companies that have presented at the Forum since 2003 have raised more than $4 billion in growth financing from public and private sources.

Every application received will be reviewed, scored, and given feedback by a selection committee of investors. Of these applications, 30 companies will be selected to present and compete for the Clean Energy Venture Award and commercialization services from NREL.

Even if a company is not selected to present, the application process includes:

  • exposure to more than 120 North American investors
  • valuable and direct feedback from investor reviewers
  • reduced price registration to attend the Forum
  • the opportunity to see and learn from the investment pitches of other clean energy companies

For more information about the Forum and instructions about how to apply, visit the Industry Growth Forum website.
