Entrepreneurs in Renewable Energy :series 3    Mon Oct 23, 2017, Toronto, ON

What does it take to be an entrepreneur in the renewable energy industry?

We invited 4 entrepreneurs to talk about how they founded their companies, which are in the fields of solar, energy storage, asset management and crowd funding.

You may be wondering, as an entrepreneur, how do you identify opportunities? How to turn that idea into a business? What do you need along the way? How to raise capital? What motivates entrepreneurs? What to do when you encounter obstacles?

Our guest speakers will share their personal experiences and give advice for aspiring future entrepreneurs.
