This event is the final of three organized by SARTA’s CleanStart program. The event is co-hosted by Sierra Commons and the Nevada County Economic Resource Council at Esterly Hall, home of the Nevada County Realtors Association. Participants will showcase wares on tables and get feedback on their clean and ag tech products, have the opportunity to film a one-minute promotional video about their company or product for posting on the CleanStart Virtual Expo and meet potential investors, partners and service providers.

Attendees also will have the opportunity to introduce themselves at the microphone, meet and mingle with the clean/ag tech community at large and get tapped into the latest clean and ag tech happenings in the region.

In the latest CleanStart Progress Report it was revealed Sacramento region clean tech revenues in 2012 grew by 29 percent to over $2.1 billion, while employment grew by 31 percent to more than 3,200. Both marks are all-time highs for the region’s clean tech sector. Reports will be available at the event at no cost.

The total number of area clean tech companies now totals 99 as indicated in an updated SARTA interactive online map that enables users to link to Sacramento’s tech companies’ websites, identify locations and organize them by industry.

CleanStart has a long-term goal to bring 10,000 new clean-tech jobs and $5 billion in additional revenue to the Sacramento region.

In addition, T3 will be collecting used toner and ink cartridges for recycling from all attendees.

The event will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., June 26, at Esterly Hall, 336 Crown Point Circle in Grass Valley.
