We are very sorry that renewable energy visionary Dr. Hermann Scheer passed away recently. Please watch his GVS10 talk to remember this honest fighter for the green planet and a better future.

“Going green is the largest economic opportunity of the 21st century,” summarises the famous American VC John Doerr of KPCB. We agree and have organised the Green Venture Summit as an open event platform for know-how exchange and business development to foster the Green Economy. While several Cleantech IPOs are in the pipeline this year, battery maker A123 Systems celebrated their IPO already in 2009 – 7 years after founding the company.
Taking green technologies to market takes a lot of time and money. Now is the right time to start up and invest in the Green Economy as we have to reach 100% Renewable Energy by 2030 (Mark Z. Jacobson). Only then can we support a sustainable lifestyle for everybody on this planet including the 2 billion people who are still offgrid and offline. We should all become green companies and green consumers. And we should all produce and consume clean energy, clean products and clean services. Join us on 10 May 2010 in Berlin and meet innovative green entrepreneurs and investors at the Green Venture Summit 2010.
