Overview

Between 2007 and 2010, Cleantech Group hosted six Cleantech Forums in Asia: three in China, two in India, and one in South Korea. Since then, CTG has run a number of invitation-only summits in Asia, mostly in China where we ran five China Tours (2011-17).

For this November, we are excited to announce a collaboration with the hosts of CleanConnect, Umore Consulting. CleanConnect is an annual event held in China since 2014, and which we consider the most professional event focused on connecting innovation outside China to the key partners within it.

During this year’s CleanConnect (November 15-16 2018), Cleantech Group will independently run a Next-Gen Energy & Industry Innovation Summit under the umbrella of Umore’s wider event – the overall event having its six usual focus areas: Hazardous Waste, Industrial Wastewater, Monitoring and Smart Solutions, Soil/Groundwater Remediation, VOCs Treatment, and Waste-to-Value.

AsiaConnect Week

CleanConnect is part of AsiaConnect Week – one week, two events. AsiaConnect Week is a joint initiative between Cleantech Group and Umore Consulting. It consists of two events:

  • Cleantech Forum Asia in Singapore on November 13-14, hosted by Cleantech Group. More information about our Forum can be found here.
  • CleanConnect in Nanjing, China on November 15-16, hosted by Umore Consulting.

This site is focused specifically on the Next-Gen Energy & Industry Innovation Summit. If you wish to learn more about the wider CleanConnect program and its six 2018 subjects – Hazardous Waste, Industrial Wastewater, Monitoring and Smart Solutions, Soil/Groundwater Remediation, VOCs Treatment, and Waste-to-Value – please be in touch via forums@cleantech.com, and we will make the introduction.

What to Expect

The focus of the Next-Gen Energy and Industry Innovation Summit’s program will be a knowledge exchange on:

  • What is happening in China, what are key innovation and investment trends, and the opposite (what is happening outside)? With a particular focus on energy, power and mobility, and with a particular (though not exclusive) focus on data and digital technologies.
  • What are the opportunities for in-bound, non-Chinese companies with innovative solutions appropriate to China?
  • What are the success stories and what can be learned from the less successful in terms of scaling a business in China?

Considerable time within the program will be given to showcasing innovation companies:

  • Chinese companies who are great examples of domestic innovation the world should be aware of, given their ambitions to go global.
  • Foreign companies, recruited from the global innovation call (see Speakers page for more information), who believe they have strong market potential in China.

Who Will Attend?

This Innovation Summit is an invitation-only meeting (with up to 100 seats available) to ensure the highest quality dialogue in an intimate setting, and to ensure that all who attend will get value from the format and the agenda.

We’ve listed some of the top reasons why you should consider attending the Next-Gen Energy and Industry Innovation Summit:

  • You are a China-based investor and/or a Chinese corporation looking to find and connect with some of the best of global innovation (all conveniently located in one place across 2 days).
  • You are a young company at startup or scale-up stage with a relevant solution to this region. For 48 hours, you will have the chance to meet a wide range of investors and corporations not normally all together in one place.
  • You are a public sector agency with a mandate to help companies assess the market opportunity and expand into the Chinese market.
  • You are a financial or corporate investor from outside the region looking to find co-investors, strategic partners for your portfolio companies, LPs for your fund, etc.
  • You are looking to get up-to-date information on innovation trends and players in China for strategic planning purposes.
  • You like high energy, positively-minded and high quality events for people who want to get things done, making good by doing good.

Agenda

The program of the Next-Gen Energy & Industry Innovation Summit will run across the two days, as follows:

  • November 15th – We will begin in the afternoon and run into an evening reception.
  • November 16th – We will likely use three-quarters of this day, as opposed to all of it (to allow people time to get home for the weekend).

The detailed agenda will be developed across June-August and will be released gradually. Considerable time within the program will be given over to showcasing innovation companies.

If you are a startup or scale-up company wishing to present and/or participate within this Summit, please apply via our live i3 innovation campaign (places are being accepted on a rolling basis from June 1, 2018). The campaign will expire when all places are taken – so hurry to take advantage of this limited opportunity.

Travel

Venue

Nanjing will be the host city of the Next-Gen Energy & Industry Innovation Summit @ CleanConnect on November 15-16.

Situated in the Yangtze River Delta region, Nanjing has a prominent place in Chinese history and culture, having served as the capital of various Chinese dynasties, kingdoms and republican governments dating from the 3rd century to 194. Today, Nanjing is capital of the famous Jiangsu province.

Nanjing is one of the five hub stations on the Beijing–Shanghai High-Speed Railway, and as such is well located for access by train, as well as having a nearby airport.

More information coming soon.
