Whilst considerable focus has been on government programmes to fund larger scale projects (e.g. renewable energy and infrastructure), such as through public backed Green Investment Banks, alongside policies to encourage businesses energy efficiency, far less attention has been given to addressing the green innovation patient capital gap facing early stage small businesses (Owen et al, 2018; McDaniels and Robins, 2017; Rowlands, 2009).
The conference therefore aims to bring together leading academics, policy makers and practitioners to discuss and showcase the interplay of policy and contemporary new innovative forms of entrepreneurial finance for early stage green innovative SMEs.
Key note speakers
Professor Nick Robins - Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change, London School of Economics
Professor Fergus Lyon - Deputy Head of ESRC Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity, Centre for Enterprise and Economic Research, Middlesex University
