Post-COP26, there is renewed and energised focus in the City of Glasgow, the rest of Scotland and the whole of the UK in showing leadership on tackling issues of climate change.

Once again, Greenbackers are selecting and showcasing promising, investible cleantech ventures and helping them to secure growth funding. All-Energy is the UK’s largest renewables trade show with over 8000 in attendance and 250 exhibitors the last time it was run. Greenbackers will have a substantial stand presence and SuperPitch there, with 8000 delegates expected, plus online.

Join us to meet them, along with active funds and investors in the Climate, ESG and Impact investing space. The networking will be fantastic! As well as at our Stand where you can meet these tech heroes, there will be an investment SuperPitch event during the afternoon of Day 1. This event will be live + also live streamed to our global audience.

Funds can view all ventures via Greenbackers unique, secure Investment Showcase dealroom. Selected ventures are featured on this online investment platform, where invited funders can engage opportunities in a ‘mini-data room’ environment and determine their suitability for investment. Greenbackers then proactively co-ordinate communications, discovery discussions and due diligence between the ventures and investors who connect.
