Industry Spotlight - Cleantech Investing


According to a new Crunchbase article on cleantech investing under the Biden Administration, venture investors and startup founders believe the president-elect will spark renewed private-sector investment in cleantech and clean energy.

Join RVC and our esteemed guests, Sarah Jane Maxted and Tim Hade, for insights on cleantech venture investing in 2021 and beyond. In addition to their work at Clean Energy for Biden, these two guest speakers have deep cleantech industry expertise.

Most recently, she served as Director of Strategic Initiatives at MIT’s spin-out The Engine, a $250 million dollar venture capital fund focused on advanced tough tech, breakthrough technology. She directed and scaled the MIT Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program across 40+ global regions to develop their regional innovation ecosystems. SJ also spent time in the private sector working for two different consulting firms including Deloitte’s Federal Energy and Emerging Markets practices where she focused on innovation, strategy and operational opportunities across public and private sector clients including National Labs and utilities. SJ served in President Obama’s Administration at the United States Department of Energy (U.S. DOE), where she served as Special Assistant to Secretary Dr. Steven Chu and worked on special projects and was detailed to the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy to manage a tech transfer and commercialization portfolio.
