The CleanTech Future Conference II Showcases 80 Leaders Sharing Key Solutions for a Vibrant Economy and Cleaner Environment
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Twenty years since its inception, the clean-technology industry is now a dynamic force powering business advancement, driving change and leading us to a low carbon future. Today, entrepreneurial innovators and multinational corporations are meeting in the middle and working together, globally. In just over three weeks, November 4 & 5, in San Francisco, the CleanTech Future Conference II will showcase more than 80 top executives, visionaries and innovative entrepreneurs sharing their views on how deploying clean technologies can bring about a more vibrant economy worldwide, as well as an improved environment.
“Whether working with large corporations or innovative upstarts, anyone who wants to gain creative foresight into the future of business can benefit from attending,” said Keith Raab, CEO and Co-Founder of the organizer, CleanTech Connections (www.ctechconnect.com). “This second event in our forward-looking series will bring together influential executives shaping the next big growth area of technology.”
The first day’s focus will be “Breakthrough Capitalism: Corporate Change Leaders.” The second day will emphasize “CleanTech 4G: Ushering in the Era of the Cleanweb.” Some of the many intriguing keynote topics include:

For the complete agenda see http://www.ctechconnect.com/index.php/events/san-fransisco/agenda. Ample opportunities are provided for networking.
As the cleantech industry’s only, all-keynote conference, the CleanTech Future Conference series aspires to be the premier showcase for visionary ideas that inspire useful action and meaningful change. Speakers and their organizations are carefully vetted for relevance and interest. The keynote format avoids the fragmented chat that is so common to panels. It lets the audience experience a varied collection of coherent perspectives to inform their own insights into industry direction and momentum. Each presenter is encouraged to break out of the conventional slide-presentation straightjacket and share their vision in as lively and creative way as they like, speaking up, not down, to the equally lively and knowledgeable audience.
In 2013, Keith Raab, co-founder & CEO of CleanTech Connections and one of the pioneers of the cleantech industry, and Joe Trackwell, co-founder & COO, saw a need for a different kind of industry event that focused more on access to markets and somewhat less on access to capital. Past events organized by CleanTech Connections include CleanTech Future Conference I, in Phoenix, AZ, and the Savannah International Clean Energy Conference 2012. Between them, the founders have hosted more than 70 clean technology and sustainability conferences around the world over the past nearly 20 years.
