Washington State University Champions Innovation as a Principal Sponsor
CleanTech Alliance, the nation’s largest state-level clean technology industry association, strengthened the 2015 CleanTech Showcase with the addition of Washington State University as a principal sponsor, joining The Boeing Company and Wells Fargo Insurance Services. The University of Washington joined as a supporting sponsor.
The annual CleanTech Showcase is the leading one-day event to network, learn and invest in the latest cleantech innovations from companies and research institutions across the Pacific Northwest. Twenty-four companies will present to more than 300 executives, partners and investors. Keynote speakers, panels, poster sessions and an interactive exhibit space will highlight even more technologies, services and ideas covering clean technology, energy and environmental sustainability.
“Washington State University’s partnership with the CleanTech Showcase is a natural fit, furthering our role in enabling innovation through education and research,” said Anson Fatland, Associate Vice President for Economic Development at Washington State University. “The CleanTech Showcase features the Pacific Northwest’s leading organizations and demonstrates why our region is a global cleantech leader.”
“Washington’s universities and research institutions generate revolutionary ideas that can transform the clean energy and sustainability markets,” said Dr. Daniel Schwartz, Director of the Clean Energy Institute at the University of Washington. “The CleanTech Showcase lets our inventive people connect with business leaders through presentations, poster sessions and exhibits. Building partnerships is essential to success for new technologies, and the CleanTech Showcase delivers. That’s why the University of Washington proudly supports the event.”
The CleanTech Showcase is June 22, 2015, at Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle. Registration to attend is now open. Companies interested in sponsoring or exhibiting should contact Sharon Schierle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-389-8662.
