CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2010) - In a capital-intensive industry such as energy, access to financing is critical. The Second Annual MIT Sloan Energy Finance Forum will spotlight this topic, with panels and speakers slated to explore the life cycle of energy finance from early- to late-stage venture capital fund raising. The forum, which will be held on Friday, December 3 from 1-6pm on the MIT Sloan campus, is free of charge and offers attendees the opportunity to network with leading energy finance professionals.
Panels are designed to take attendees deeper inside energy finance negotiations throughout the cycle:
Keynote speakers and panelists, who represent government, venture capital, industry, and academic sectors, will round out the forum:
"While energy projects require significant funding and payback periods may be extensive, the long-term gains are very attractive. As a result, energy finance requires a keen understanding of how the capital markets work," says Rob Lemos, MIT Sloan MBA '11 and president of the MIT Sloan Energy and Environment Club. "MIT Sloan is renowned for its history in financial innovation and expertise, while MIT is recognized as a center of innovation in energy. It is a natural fit for the Energy Finance Forum to be held at the crossroads of innovation in finance and energy."
