Eco Innovator November 2011
Present to US VCs at G'Day
NSW Trade & Investment
is inviting innovative NSW green building companies to participate in
a trade mission to the US West Coast from 11-20 January 2012. The trade
mission will coincide with green building conferences and pitching events
in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York as part of the G'Day USA 2012
The US green building sector
is expanding rapidly due to growing public awareness of green practices,
increased government intervention, regulations and subsidies and recognition
of cost, energy and health benefits. These factors make the US green buildings
sector opportune for green buildings companies to expand their business,
says NSW Trade & Investment.
G'Day USA promotes Australia
to the US market to strengthen bilateral collaboration and realize business
opportunities. The three week program from 11 to 29 January takes new
business, education, entertainment, innovation and tourism events to eight
cities - Palm Springs, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego,
New York, Houston and Chicago.
The Cappello Investor Conference
in Los Angeles will feature presentations from Australian companies to
an audience of 150 institutional investors such as venture capital firm,
hedge funds, mutual funds, and private equity firms. Companies wanting
to take part in the Investor Conference will have to register with a fee
The program also features an
Energy Efficiency Forum in San Francisco, Green Buildings Forums in Los
Angeles and New York, and an Energy Conference.
The NSW Government has participated
in the annual G'Day USA promotion since its inception in 2004. The event
suits businesses with an internationally competitive technology or product,
an interest in the US market, are seeking capital to accelerate and fund
growth, want to identify potential business partners, and are capable
of presenting to substantial US audiences.
Participating companies must
be export ready with a turnover in the past financial year of $1 million
for metropolitan or $500,000 for regional companies. Selection will be
based on the ability of companies to demonstrate eligibility against these
criteria. Financial assistance of up to $3,000 will be provided to selected
companies to subsidize their participation.
