An Energetic Thank You to Our Energy Innovation Forum Speakers and Sponsors
The British consulate on Memorial Drive was hopping last night as roughly 125 people gathered for our Energy Innovation forum, which featured a great panel led by Xconomist Bill Aulet of the MIT Entrepreneurship Center—and an incredible chat between Paul “Charlie Rose” Maeder of Highland Capital Partners and energy-efficiency guru Amory Lovins, co-founder and chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute.
We’ll post more about the event tomorrow, but for now, we’d really like to thank all those who made the event such a stellar success. First, a special thank you to our fantastic event host and charter underwriter, UK Trade & Investment, and the team there who welcomed us into their offices overlooking the Charles River and bailed us out on a few last-minute logistics glitches. (Yes, Kevin McCarthy, that means you—thanks!)
We were also generously supported by our event sponsors, Comerica Bank and Jones Lang LaSalle, the global real estate services firm. Greentech Media was our media partner and the Renewable Energy Business Network helped us spread the word.
And, in addition to Paul, Bill, and Amory, we’d like to thank the other panelists, whose powerful insights helped make the event a tremendous success: Bill Wiberg of Advanced Technology Ventures, Jim Matheson from Flagship Venture Partners (who pulled no punches, at least when it came to the Pats), Don Lessard of the MIT Sloan School of Management, and Christina Lampe-Onnerud, CEO of Boston Power.
Lastly, a big thanks to our attendees. We hope to see you all at our next event, The Battle of the Tech Bands 2.
