Are you passionate about fueling the future of climate technology? Join us at Greentown Labs Houston for the third workshop in the Houston Ion District Investor Activation Program!

In this session we’ll be learning from host Nisha Desai, Founder and CEO of Intention, and Somesh Singh with TiE Houston. Somesh is an angel investor, C-Suite executive, founder, board director and advisor for global public and private companies. TiE Houston is a nonprofit venture devoted to entrepreneurs in all industries, at all stages, throughout the entrepreneurial life cycle. With a global reach and a local focus, the heart of TiE efforts lies in its five foundational programs, – Mentoring, Networking, Education, Funding, and Incubation.

​​We’ll dive deep into the process of evaluating and investing in groundbreaking climatetech startups. From analyzing pitch decks to crafting deal memos, you’ll gain invaluable insights and tools to support innovative climate solutions.

​The Houston Ion District Investor Activation Program is helping build an equitable climatetech industry capable of rapid deployment by addressing a fundamental challenge: the region’s lack of funding for early-stage climatetech startups, and especially for those led by underrepresented founders.

​This program from Greentown Labs and the Ion brings early-stage investors from Greater Houston—a region playing a pivotal role in the energy transition—into the fold, offering education on climatetech investing, channeling a pool of capital to young startups, and catalyzing a thriving climatetech investment ecosystem that prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion. Join the program here.
