November Cleantech Founders Breakfast Club: How frothy is too frothy? Is this the right time to raise a round for a startup in clean energy and climate?

Event overview

With so much activity in the markets and with recent legislation (Inflation Reduction Act), more money is expected to be invested in energy and climate companies and projects. But does this influx of potential capital make investors reticent to invest in a “wait and see” environment or are they jumping to place dollars? We will examine the marketplace appetite and explore critical metrics for consideration of a startup raise. Baker Botts Partner, Mike Torosian has specific experience in bringing pre-seed companies to exits including IPOs. He brings his expert perspectives and insights to this important and timely topic for our November CFBC.
