Top Cleantech Startups Meet with Investors, Corporates and Customers in NYC

After a successful Investor Corporate Customer Connect (ICCC) in Boston this spring, NECEC’s Cleantech Navigate Northeast (Navigate) headed to New York City on November 15 for a second round of our signature connection event for cleantech startups.

ICCC is the flagship event of our Navigate program, which supports cleantech startups ranging from pilot to first customers. We collaborate with incubators, accelerators and other innovation partners across the Northeast, while actively building a comprehensive network and database of investors, corporates and customers in the cleantech space.

Our New York ICCC was hosted by one of our New York City partners, Grand Central Tech, the city’s largest single dedicated platform for growing premier ventures from seed to scale. Thanks to support from our Navigate sponsors MassCEC and NYSERDA, we brought together 21 investment firms, corporates and customers in search of deal opportunities from early-stage to growth-stage across all sectors of the clean energy industry. These companies have committed to deploying several billion dollars into the cleantech industry. They are:

With help from our Investors Steering Committee, which includes Clean Energy Venture Group, GE Ventures, MassCEC, Slater Technology Fund and Spring Lane Capital, we matched the investors, corporates and customers listed above with the following 19 promising cleantech startups in the Northeast:

With more than 100 one-on-one meetings between these two groups, we are proud to have jump-started promising introductions that we hope to see turn into deals and partnerships that advance cleantech innovation in the Northeast. Navigate is eager to expand our partner network - if you would like to be a part of helping us connect entrepreneurs with major investors, corporates and customers in the region, please reach out to discuss how we can work together!
