CleanTech Nation: Why Investments Have Risen 477%
Written by Jay Turo on Monday, July 27, 2009
You've likely heard all of the hype regarding Cleantech.
How the Obama stimulus plan fuels $83 billion into the sector.
How cleantech investment today is more than 477% greater than what it was in 2005.
How Vinod Khosla, arguably the world's most famous and well- respected venture capitalist, last week raised another $1 billion - including $150 million of his own money, to invest in it.
Wind. Solar. Geothermal. Water treatment. Smart grid. Fuel cells. Carbon capture. If you have turned the TV on at all over the past year, you've probably heard about all of these.
And here is one you probably haven't heard - Bio-friendly pesticides.
Well, if you're interested in capitalizing on one of the great arbitrage opportunities of our time, you should care.
Because bio-pesticides, an environmentally friendly option to synthetic chemicals, is the perfect storm about to happen.
We're talking about a $70 billion+ industry, where new, effective and safe pesticide products are gaining traction.
One where governments worldwide are mandating - through strict, new regulation - a fast transition from the old, synthetic-based products that have been damaging our health and the environment for far too long.
An industry that includes dozens of completely under-the-radar, private companies. And cash - rich big boys, like DowAgro and Monsanto - on acquisition sprees.
Meet the Industry Leader
I would like to invite you to an exclusive opportunity to meet, via web conference, the CEO of one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic companies in the industry.
He will talk about the super-fast growth his company is currently experiencing, and how they relate to his public offering and acquistion plans.
If you're interested in learning how money is really made in emerging technology, then this is a presentation you don't want to miss.
