Carnegie Mellon University

Today, much of the educational material available for cleantech/energy innovators and entrepreneurs is generic for all sectors, and not specifically designed for the cleantech sector. In addition, ever-changing energy policy provides opportunities, challenges, and risks to the budding entrepreneur.

The need for patient capital also changes the interactions between energy entrepreneurs and potential investors, which may also include foundations and government agencies. By better understanding the pathways of successful energy innovators and entrepreneurs, the next generation can be better prepared for the opportunities and challenges they will face. 

As part of our mission to support budding cleantech entrepreneurs, we will regularly post audio and video content that can be used in classes and workshops in academic and non-academic settings. The expected outcome for these products would be enhanced advancement of cleantech entreprenurship for the next generations based on the lessons learned over the past decade.
