The Rice Alliance Energy Tech Venture Day will showcase about 40 energy technology companies.

Hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, about 40 energy technology companies will present their 2 ½ minute business pitches. Most companies have initial funding and are seeking their A, B, C, or later rounds with technology validation, field trial experience, and/or initial company revenue. This free to attend online event offers a great opportunity for viewers to learn more about innovative technologies and provides companies with access to strategic partners, customers, and investment opportunities.

This event was originally scheduled to be hosted at OTC. While the format of the event will look different, we’ll still provide a platform for energy tech ventures to gain exposure and funding. Pitches will be streamed starting at 9:00 a.m. Central Time for free to anyone registered. To ensure an efficient virtual event, we will not be hosting Q&A with companies or a chat feature during the pitches. If interested in connecting with the companies after their pitches, you can visit our website for info. In the weeks following the event, the participating companies will hold virtual one-on-one meetings with investors and industry representatives.
