“One of the most rewarding aspects of attending the NC Clean Tech Summit was talking with the students. Their ideas and enthusiasm were energizing and I was thrilled to share my experiences and mentor future leaders in the clean tech sector.”   Richard G. Kidd IV, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army, Energy and Sustainability


“The NC Clean Tech Summit’s objective to connect students with industry experts was more than achieved. My mentor’s industry knowledge helped me narrow my focus for companies I’ve been targeting. From specialization of the company to corporate culture, she was able to help me analyze the parts of companies that weren’t easily “google-able”. “    Trevor Sprague, MBA ‘16
