Over 30 elected officials and business professionals will address how technology can help businesses run cleaner, more efficiently and more profitably, at a Clean Tech Roundtable hosted by Bryan Cave LLP at The Broad Stage at Santa Monica College Tuesday, June 30th.
The event is free and open to the public
The conference will feature top California leaders, including Attorney General Jerry Brown, Treasurer Bill Lockyer, Controller John Chiang, and former controller and clean tech venture capitalist Steve Westly. The state leaders plan to outline their vision on how to promote important new state and federal clean technology initiatives.
Santa Monica City Councilman Bobby Shriver will lead a panel discussion on how to access grants and other government incentives for clean technology projects, including “stimulus” funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Experts will share how investors assess clean technology investment opportunities, how current and anticipated environmental regulatory programs could foster or hinder renewable energy and other clean technology initiatives, as well as other business issues facing clean technology industries.
