Every day, there is magic happening at Greentown Labs—from scientists and engineers developing groundbreaking climatetech innovations in our labs to entrepreneurs making impactful connections with each other over coffee. And for one day a year, we open up our lab doors so that you can see the climate action that’s at work here year-round.
#Greentown10 is a celebration of the startups, partners, ecosystem collaborators, and other climate champions who have worked together over Greentown’s first decade. This month, we’re spotlighting our annual DEMO Day event, which in 2020 evolved into the Greentown Labs Climatetech Summit.
We held our first DEMO Day in 2013, two years after Greentown’s founding. Throughout the years, DEMO Day grew into an event that featured lab tours, dynamic speaking programs featuring industry leaders and elected officials, popcorn pitches from our members, and, most crucially, opportunities for the entire climatetech and cleantech ecosystem to connect with our startups. We regularly announced big news at the event, from our in-state expansion to our members’ product launches.
In 2020, we took DEMO Day to the next level. The first-ever Greentown Labs Climatetech Summit introduced what we see as the four pillars of climate action—technology, finance, policy, and justice—and featured programming on each, alongside extra opportunities to network with our startups, including our first investor speed networking. This virtual event drew more than 2,200 attendees from 30 countries around the world.
This year, we can’t wait for the second annual Climatetech Summit, and hope you’ll join us on Nov. 4 at Greentown HQ, Greentown Houston, or via livestream. At this hybrid event, you will hear directly from Greentown’s entrepreneurs about the solutions they’re developing and what they need to bring them to market. You’ll also learn about key technology areas that are driving momentum to equitably tackle the climate crisis, and explore the plentiful opportunities for everyone to be a part of the energy transition that’s already unfolding.
