Full Summary: For entrepreneurs located in Atlanta or Research Triangle, what are some key considerations in addressing markets, raising capital, hiring employees and building company infrastructure to address growing national and international markets?

The world is increasingly flat in clean technology. While local and regional markets exist for Clean Tech, national and international markets contain key drivers that impact market acceptance and economic viability that provide opportunities to achieve significant business viability and scale.
