Every good company begins with a great idea. But how do you turn your great idea into a successful company? This process is difficult for any entrepreneur, but those in the energy industry take on the additional difficulty of addressing complex and long-term problems. Join EPIC as we hear from the managing director of the Invenergy Future Fund Amy Francetic, along with energy firms that got their start at UChicago, for a conversation on what it takes to build an energy start-up, and survive—from what makes a good pitch and how to get funding to the unique challenges energy entrepreneurs face today and the opportunities presented by falling energy costs.
This event is part of the UChicago Innovation Fest 2018, which will take placefrom May 1 to June 3. The fest is a month-long celebration of the pioneering and entrepreneurial endeavors at the University of Chicago, featuring events on campus and in key cities around the world.
