On April 12, the Berkeley-Stanford CleanTech Conference (BSCC) will present Leaping Forward: Business Opportunities for Cleantech in Emerging Markets. The BSCC is a joint effort between the UC-Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative and the Stanford Energy Club.
This event will feature three panels covering the design of innovative new products, the policy and financing barriers facing large-scale market entrants, and the sustainability of the material value chain. Following the panels will be a networking reception for attendees and panelists.
Keynote speeches will be delivered by Vinod Khosla, President of Khosla Ventures, and Elizabeth Littlefield, CEO and President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). Other confirmed participants include Ashok Gadgil (Director, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs), Julian Wong (former DOE adviser), and Michael Kobori (VP of Supply Chain Social and Environmental Sustainability at Levi Strauss & Co.).
This program will be held at the Oberndorf Events Center and Vidalakis Dining Hall on the Stanford University Campus (directions).
