If you didn’t have a chance to join us at Hot Italian for our Summer PowerUp event on the 24th, you missed a great one!  Hot Italian makes wonderful pizza and they just kept them coming….along with pitchers of beer.  Thanks so much to Doug Bosley of BTNT law firm for being our host.


One reason for the meeting was to hear from new companies in the cleantech space that we had not heard about before.  We had four.  Apis is an air pollution monitoring and clean up strategy company, explained by Joe Palumbo.  Charge-X headed by Bill Northrup is a new EV charger company extending supercharging beyond Tesla. Larry Buckle has started a new waste-to-energy company, Energetix Systems, that he told us about.  And dropping out at the last minute due to a need to get a proposal submitted but sending his regards was Ezra Beeman who has a company with a home energy storage and management device, based in Davis.  The sector keeps growing and that’s fantastic.


We also heard about some new fundraising approaches from Doug Kor of Osmosvote, what’s up at SACOG from Mari Salazar, developments at Area 52 from Kristoffer Wihlborg.  Jessica Holcombe, IP attorney, filled us in on her run for the 1st Congressional District seat held by Doug Amalfi.  And much more.
