Innovative startup companies working in the energy sector are invited to apply to the Spark Tank, a pitch event kicking off the second annual Energy Conference hosted by ENGAGE. The conference will be held Sept. 17 in Paonia.
Applications must be submitted by Aug. 15, with a selection date of Aug. 31. Applicants selected will have travel and lodging paid for and attend the full conference free of charge.
On the evening of Sept. 17, selected companies will pitch to a panel of industry decision-makers, investors, energy experts and leaders, conference attendees, and members of the public at the Paradise Theatre in Paonia.
Each company will have 15 minutes to pitch, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. Before and during the conference, Spark Tank participants will be provided the opportunity to schedule short meetings with registered energy leaders or potential investors attending the conference. Attendees will also be granted the opportunity to request audiences with Spark Tank participants.
Capitalizing on a very successful inaugural event, the second annual Energy Conference will further explore the topic of energy innovation. The intersection of traditional providers, innovative disruptors and a newfound focus on the customer are stimulating a rapid industrial transition in the once staid power utility business.
