Description

Doors at 6.45pm for a 7.15pm start

Resource scarcity, climate change and public pressure are accelerating us into a new economic model. Some call it a sustainability revolution, and it is gathering pace. Some businesses are struggling to adapt, while others are embracing change. This is a unique chance to engage with a panel who are defining this new business environment. If you see opportunity, then this is a must-attend session because one thing is clear, this is the climate for entrepreneurs.

Some key topics that will be covered:

• What is the business climate for sustainability startups in London and the UK?

• Where are the greatest long-term opportunities?

• When will there be a British Elon Musk in sustainable businesses?

• What mistakes can early stage sustainable businesses avoid?

• What characteristics make a billion pound plus business of the future?

Facilitator: Brindusa Fidanza (CEO The Ground_Up Project and former Head of Climate at World Economic Forum)

Panellists: James Cameron (Former Chairman of Climate Change Capital), Greg Barker (former Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change), Jason Mitchell (Sustainability Fund Manager at GLG) and Jean Oelwang (CEO of Virgin Unite)
