Welcome to Rushlight
Rushlight Events are designed to promote the development and deployment of clean technologies, innovation and sustainable solutions. The events are exceptional networking opportunities and they are suitable for small & large companies, advisers, investors, financiers, consultants, analysts, media and other sector followers. Some of our events will focus on the stage of a technology before it has become the accepted norm, and others will cover sustainable solutions that have successfully broken into the market. Other events, such as the Built Environment Briefings, focus on where the technologies need to go to develop suitable and necessary solutions and what solutions currently exist for built environment professionals.
We have just celebrated the 10th anniversary of our flagship event, the Rushlight Awards. We also ran our hugely successful Rushlight Show, enjoying its 8th year. We are now launching our inaugural Rushlight Summer Showcase to provide major opportunities for cleantech companies to meet investors, financiers, intermediaries and corporate venturers and customers every 6 months.
Our series of early evening briefings provide the content and opportunities of a full day conference, with leading speakers and panellists, excellent venues and effective networking but at a tithe of the price and outside the normal working hours. These include our Investor Briefings, Energy Briefings, Built Environment Briefings, Sustainable Resource Briefings, BioBriefings and Transport Briefings.
We are the leading provider of key events in this sector with an extensive database of market participants, excellent relationships with major cleantech stakeholders and an ever-expanding network both in the UK & Ireland and internationally.
In addition to events, we also provide a number of support or incubation and accelerator services to clean technology developers, including but not limited to:
- key partner introductions
- mentoring, non-execs, interim, part-time permanent and other senior management solutions
- business and market strategy
- investor readiness and financial planning
- investor introductions
We are proud to have founded the London Cleantech Cluster in 2012 and continue to support it. We are also heavily involved in the resource sector and the circular economy through our collaboration with the London Community Resource Network.
