Access to Success Pitch Event

September 14 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm Central

Join us on Wednesday, September 14 to champion underrepresented founders!

Wednesday, September 14 | 10:00am

Underrepresented founders in climatetech face unique and growing challenges to accessing investors and fundraising in order to scale their companies and push forward the energy transition. How can startups bridge this gap, and where can investors who want to begin diversifying their portfolios find guidance?

Look no further than the next installment of our Access to Success pitch event on September 14 at Greentown Houston! Join us for a pitch competition and a showcase featuring underrepresented founders, and stay for a networking lunch to form some curated connections.

As the climatetech finance industry strives to become more equitable, we have an opportunity to establish a network of founders and investors across the country. This event is an interactive opportunity to form investor-founder connections and aims to create a more equitable climate finance landscape.
