    Cleantech Forum San Francisco 2018

    Now in its 16th year, Cleantech Forum San Francisco 2018 will once again be a true kick off for your year – mark your calendars for January 22-24, 2018!

    This annual gathering of the global cleantech innovation community offers a comprehensive, three-day program along with exclusive opportunities to network, learn, and get deals done. Since 2002, Cleantech Group has brought together clean technology’s most influential leaders – corporate executives, start-up and growth company CEOs, investors, government agencies, and other players – from across all areas of resource innovation, from the major industrial verticals, and from across the globe.

    The upcoming Forum will be our 16th annual showing of our flagship event, and Charting the Future, Connecting the Globe remains core to the value proposition of Cleantech Forums, and indeed all of CTG’s services.

    Our Cleantech Forums give you a glimpse of the future, get you out of your everyday silos, provide a different perspective, and help you find innovations of relevance to you that are in adjacent or altogether different industrial and technology areas. We convene the game-changers from multiple sectors all in one place for three days, from 25+ countries, and from over 100 cities worldwide. Our 16-year history of Cleantech Forums speaks to the importance of our events in getting deals done (or started), and the feedback we receive from attendees each year highlights the unique opportunities found at our Forums.

    For our 16th Forum, we are building the theme around the idea of “next generations.” Expect insights on where the next generation of technologies might take the industrial landscape, hear from the newest generation of investment vehicles, and expect to meet CEOs who are representing how the next generation of entrepreneurs are shaping up.

    We will once again host the official announcement of our annual Global Cleantech 100 list and awards, as well as release our Global Cleantech 100 Report that highlights the mega-trends of the next 5-10 years.

    Breakfast roundtable with the Mining Shared Value about achieving SDGs

    MSV, hosted by the CIPE, will be holding a roundtable in Washington, D.C. to talk about its impacts to date across the global mining system, and looks forward to talking with attending organizations about directions to take, and futures to make, with stakeholders interested in mining and development.

    Mining Shared Value seeks to scale-up its capacities for positively influencing the global mining system by reaching out to an international stakeholder base. It is currently in a unique position to push for industry-wide understanding and action on local procurement through establishing partnerships across sectors. Working with global players, including the World Bank, International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), and bilateral aid organizations including the German development agency (GIZ), Mining Shared Value has placed itself at the heart of global debates on natural resource governance, but must reach out further to bridge the gaps between research and practical implementation in the industry.

    Join us for our monthly Accelerator Stand-up Call held on the fourth Thursday of every month and graciously hosted by Ryan Ross of Halcyon Incubator!

    Emerging from the Accelerating the Accelerators (AtA) Collective Impact Project (CIP) on the topic of ongoing communications, Conveners.org launched a regular monthly half-hour accelerator call in March 2016 to spark a strong sense of community and mutual exchange among impact accelerators.

    Through the calls, we provide accelerators with a vital means of connecting with each other regularly for peer support in (but not limited to) the following areas:

    • identifying tried-and-true advice on solutions, tools, resources, best practices;
    • introductions for face-to-face meetings particularly when planning a trip; and
    • drawing attention to interesting developments in the social enterprise space looking six months out.

    A Social Enterprise in the Making: Can a Private Sector Model Work for Poor Women in India?

    Women are overrepresented worldwide in the informal sector, with no easy transition to more decent, better-paid employment. Waste picking in particular is a highly vulnerable and risky form of informal employment. In 1995, India’s Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) organized women waste pickers in Ahmedabad into a cooperative to improve their working conditions and livelihoods. Over time, this informal arrangement evolved into Gitanjali – a women-owned and -run social enterprises.

    The Center for Global Development is delighted to bring together some of the key private sector partners that helped Gitanjali generate social value, along with practioners from the public sector and multilateral financial institutions, for a robust discussion about job options for poor women in low-paid, informal occupations, including a model entrepreneurship venture. The event will begin with a discussion of the CGD report, The Gitanjali Cooperative: A Social Enterprise in the Making. A panel discussion will follow. Light refreshments and limited copies of the report’s executive summary will be provided.
