Our annual Green:Net 2011 event focused on digital energy is coming up next month (April 21 in San Francisco) and one of the parts I’m most looking forward to is the Big Ideas section. We’ll be picking 10 of the most innovative startups in the digital energy space — companies using information technology to fight climate change — and those companies will get to attend Green:Net for free and present their ideas on the main stage.
So if you think your company is a good fit for our Green:Net 2011 Big Ideas section, submit your company information here! The deadline for submission is coming up on March 14, 2011 (yes, this upcoming Monday!), and we’ll be announcing the winners shortly thereafter.
I’m super excited for our third annual Green:Net event, and I hope you can all join me on April 21 in San Francisco. Come hear from speakers like NRG Energy’s CEO David Crane, Autodesk’s CEO Carl Bass, the DOE’s Loan Chief Jonathan Silver, Microsoft’s Chief Environmental Strategist Rob Bernard, Google’s Green Energy Czar Bill Weihl, Silver Spring Networks EVP and CMO Eric Dresslyhaus, OPower’s CEO Daniel Yates, Control4 CEO Will West, Yahoo’s Climate Change Director Christina Page and many more (full list/schedule here).
