Venture Startup & Financing SIG: "An Evening with Greenstart Ventures"
Greenstart is a seed investor and design studio in San Francisco that is focused on the digital clean technology sector. What is "digital cleantech?" Digital cleantech companies either expand the use of clean energy or reduce the use of dirty energy – and use software as a powerful part of their product or service.
Greenstart runs a design accelerator for digital cleantech startups - only working with the top 2% of startups who apply - and invests $115K per venture. The accelerator is a 3-month program where Greenstart and its mentors work to de-risk the business in 4 core areas: business model design, UX design, brand design, and capital design. Greenstart's staff and designers work closely with the startup founders, co-creating products and solving core business problems. At the end of the program, Greenstart helps the company launch into fundraising with a demo day and a silicon valley roadshow.
