First Look West (FLoW) is a cleantech business plan competition and mentorship program. FLoW grows the entrepreneurial talent within American universities, and accelerates the launch of cleantech companies with transformative technologies.
Managed by the California Institute of Technology, in partnership with the University of Southern California, UC Berkeley and UCLA, FLoW works with a network of universities, cleantech companies, investors, accelerators and economic development agencies throughout the Western US.
The goal of this event will be twofold: to inform those interested in learning more about the competition, and to potentially connect those who are interested in forming teams to participate. This year, we will have past winners in attendance to talk about their experiences.
