On Nov. 19, 2014, Executive Director of CleanTech Open Rex Northen’s talk attracted students from both the undergraduate and graduate business programs at SF State. He began by introducing the accelerator program at CleanTech Open and shared several anecdotes of inspiring and innovative entrepreneurs that benefited from the program. Using humor and an impressive information base, his presentation was as engaging as it was educational. He invited future entrepreneurs in the audience to bring their ideas to CleanTech and offered volunteer opportunities for students interested in volunteering at the CleanTech Forum, which is organized annually by the company. The event was jointly hosted by CESB and the Net Impact graduate chapter.
