Dim Sum with Entrepreneurs

Want to meet clean energy businesses that are breaking into the Asia market with innovative technologies and business models? Attend this dynamic, 90-minute networking and match-making event, Dim Sum with Entrepreneurs. The session will be held at ACEF on Thursday, 20 June, just before the Final ACEF Plenary. This year, 24 high-potential clean energy entrepreneurs and innovators from more than ten countries have been invited to pitch and present their solutions, including drones for solar, clean hydrogen, carbon utilisation, plug & play solar, smart grid management, micro-wind etc.

The session will be held in the rotating “World Cafe” format, similar to the successful Dim Sum networking event held at ACEF last year. Here’s how it will work:

  • Each participating company will be assigned a table. Participants will all sit down at one of the tables in the room, each of which will be hosted by a technology provider.
  • Session attendees will spend 10 minutes per round (5 total rounds) at a table learning about a specific clean technology or service the company showcases.

Key Objectives:

  • Showcase new clean energy solutions that can deployed in Asian developing countries.
  • Catalyze new commercial and technical partnerships between solution providers and potential customers, investors and other industry stakeholders.
  • Enable clean energy solution providers to expand their network and identify new potential partners and customers backed by concrete follow-up requests.

Organizers

Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN).
