Pitch Me Green is an initiative led by the Keiretsu Forum Clean Technology Committee and is designed to give burgeoning entrepreneurs the resources that they require to make their startups thrive. The event will include a networking reception, a guest speaker, and presentations from eight startups to a panel of Keiretsu Forum angel investors.

"Pitch Me Green has become a key program for clean technology startups in the San Francisco Bay Area," said Alison Wellsfry, Keiretsu Forum member and Chair of the Clean Technology Committee.
