Chemical Ventures Conference

 The chemical space has a large untapped opportunity. It has a longer investment time cycle. It has the potential for continued repeatable and predictable financial performance more so maybe than the technology space or the industries directly dependent upon the fickle consumer. The movement of mass and manipulation of energy requires a disciplined development, design and commercialization process to deliver financial results. The opportunities provide high quality jobs, sustainable long term positive effect on the economy and provide critical materials to the broader marketplace. This conference will focus on Innovation, Investment, and Deal Flow in the chemical space.
