Industry Growth Forum

The NREL Industry Growth Forum is a one-of-a-kind cleantech networking conference and the premier event for the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center.

In its 27th year, the Industry Growth Forum is the longest-running event of its type. It allows cleantech entrepreneurs, investors, and experts from industry and the public sector to build relationships, showcase innovative technologies, and identify creative business solutions.

During the Industry Growth Forum, more than 200 cleantech startups hold approximately 1,110 meetings with more than 150 investors. Maximizing the time between these two groups helps drive new cleantech innovations to the market.
