Net Zero Innovate: Financing Innovation
Innovators are popping up everywhere, but how do you move a great idea on the back of an envelope to development stage, and beyond?
As global corporations, investors, and governments pledge to transition to net zero value chains, they are all betting on climate technology breakthroughs to be found and scaled to transform their industries. Investment in breakthrough technologies can be high-risk and capital intensive, but the longer-term opportunities for investors with the vision to imagine the future world are potentially huge.
Our expert speakers will consider what is needed to attract investors to all stages of funding to achieve feasible, cost-effective and scalable innovation in the time-frames needed. We will ask how the financial muscle of institutional investors can be harnessed, and discuss policy changes that could prove a game-changer in the sector.
