Even though the sun was finally out in Seattle, dozens of folks from the worlds of cleantech, life sciences and high tech got together to share thoughts and network at Xconomy’s latest event, “Separating Hype from Reality in Alternative Fuels.”
Our panelists and presenters dove into the past and future of biofuels, the need for balanced public policy, the promise and reality of electric vehicles, how the Pacific Northwest can drive innovation in airline fuels, and much more.
For a recap of the major themes touched on by our panelists, you can check out my wrapup of Thursday night’s discussion. We’ve also put together this photo gallery of some sights from the program, captured by Vinh Chung of Total Effects Video.
We also must thank our underwriters, partners and sponsors, without whom our events wouldn’t be possible. The Institute for Systems Biology was the host, the Washington Clean Technology Alliance was our partner, and Mixtur was our design sponsor.
Our valued underwriters were Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Christensen O’Connor Johnson Kindness, Cooley, Davis Wright Tremaine, Fenwick & West, Graham & Dunn, the ISB, Invest Northern Ireland, J. Robert Scott, Kauffman Foundation, Latham & Watkins, the Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Seed IP Law Group, and Swedish Medical Center.
And our venture capital members for this event were ARCH Venture Partners, Vulcan Capital, and WRF Capital.
