Electric Vehicles are at the race tracks; from Formula One to Nascar @ Daytona!


  • Online registration is now closed. Walk-ins welcome.

    Imagine this: you could be ready for a road trip in the same amount of time it takes to charge your phone. 

    Are electric vehicles the wave of the future? And will professional investors be the winners in this field, ripe for disruption but high risk for the financial community (think Fisker)? Tesla’s model S is selling faster than it can be made and everyone is racing to compete. GM recently floated plans for a vehicle that will be a rival to Tesla’s and Nissan, with partner; Renault has committed $5 billon for development of EVs and batteries. In addition, California Gov. Jerry Brown just signed six bills to give the EV industry a push and encourage consumers to buy electric. 

    Now could be the perfect time to take advantage of opportunities for innovation and investments in energy storage, charging stations, and other technologies. Come hear our panel of investors debate and discuss what’s happening now and what’s down the road for Electric Vehicles.
