If you were looking for any further clues that the burgeoning green tech industry might be a little bit like the dotcom boom, look no further.
Remember First Tuesday, where dotcommers would gather hopefully to fascinate willing bankers and captivate venture capitalists?
Here’s a new version for the new generation of green collar workers, and hopeful green entrepreneurs: Green Monday.
It’s billed as “a mixture of news, insight, analysis and networking with keynote speakers taking centre stage followed by a number of round table discussions on pre-assigned topics”. The organisers say the “high profile gathering” is attended by about 200 people a month. All of them are people working in and leading climate change response, corporate environmental sustainability and related green business.
EDF is also a sponsor, showing its faith in the green shoots.
Oh , and the organisers are using the rather strange strapline “supporting 2 degrees collaborative solutions“. No, we didn’t know what that meant either, but we suspect it might mean “talking about stuff”.
Go forth and network, green collar people.
