Foley’s Rewards and Risks of “Green” Web Conference series will explore ways for executives in green technology industries to identify and leverage market opportunities while navigating legal and regulatory uncertainties.

  • Innovation landscape — white space versus over-saturation
  • How investors assess investment opportunities
  • Which green technology sectors appear likely to attract investment in the near to mid-term
  • Financing and IP strategies for green technology companies at different life cycle stages
