3 Leading Venture Capitalists to Judge Green:Net 2010 Launchpad

Green:Net 2010 is the GigaOM Network’s conference where green and IT meet. While alternative energy gets a lot of attention at most green conferences, only Green:Net offers a specific point of view as to how entrepreneurs can leverage computing and Internet technologies to fight climate change. One of our most popular features last year was the Startup Launchpad, where 10 hot startups with some of the coolest applications for leveraging IT against climate change launched. Check out last year’s Judge’s Winner, Wattbott.

This year we have scored a trio of leading venture capitalists to judge the competition. Come hear the insights that these investors have for the next generation of companies building business off of energy efficiency, green web and the intersection of green and IT. The Launchpad winners will receive a lot of visibility — and likely interest from investors.

Our fearless judges are:

  • Steve Vassallo, Venture Partner, Foundation Capital
  • Navin Chaddha, Managing Director, Mayfield Fund
  • Tom Blaisdell, Partner, Doll Capital Management

If you’ve been cooking up a great business idea for how to use IT to fight climate change, then enter the Launchpad! You can find the form on our conference web site.

Apart from the Launchpad we have a packed day of great content and world-class speakers. Green:Net 2010 will take place on April 29th in San Francisco at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Use this link to get $75 dollars off your ticket price:
