Green Grab Events
Save the Date! We are hosting a Green Grab on Friday, July 25 in Washington, DC at Arent Fox as part of our Annual Gathering.
Green Grabs connect high-growth sustainable companies who are seeking seed-stage investments with professional accredited investors.
Described as "Shark Tank as if created by public television and not on TV, " investors come to the table prepared to make real investments. We have a rigours application process and do our due diligence to get to know the company and invite investors we believe are a good match. Participation in our business plan competition makes it possible to participate in our Green Grab events, as the two rounds of the competition make up a large part of the due dilligence process.
