Early stage fundraising can be very challenging and discouraging as entrepreneurs ‘pound the pavement’. This is even further the case for social enterprises. Join us for a discussion on the best practices of opening and closing a round from the entrepreneurs who have executed successful fundraising rounds to learn how they have raised capital to fund their solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.

Energy Data Privacy: How Climate Changes Everything
EFF Austin

Energy data used to be boring. The utility read your meter 12 times a year, and no one cared much about seeing your utility bill history. Nowadays, things are very different. As the $10+ trillion energy transition to renewables ramps up to fight climate change, private energy data access is a critical requirement to deploy and manage distributed energy resources like solar, battery storage, electric vehicles, demand response, and energy efficiency. So how do we make the switch to a carbon-free future without compromising energy data privacy? What will the future of energy data privacy look like?
