BayBioNEST Venture Spotlight: BioPlastics & Clean/Green Tech


Palo Alto, CA

Gladys Monroy will speak on a panel at the BayBioNEST Venture Spotlight on “BioPlastics & Clean/Green Tech.” As the global market continues to shift towards more sustainable energy and material sources, bioplastics, or biopolymers, continue to become a viable alternative to traditional petroleum-based polymers. According to BASF, global plastic consumption is estimated to reach 500 billion pounds by 2010, and with current green market trends bioplastics have the potential to be an alternative to this behemoth industry. The BayBio Institute, in partnership with the NYSE, presents the BayBioNEST Venture Spotlight Series. This unique forum allows investors to speak directly to entrepreneurs in a reverse- pitch format. Investors have the pulpit to discuss their current interests, target markets, therapies, and technologies, as well as the maturation level of typical companies of interest. Additional panelists will include: Greg Young (Burrill & Co.), and Andrew Williamson (Physic Ventures). Karl Sanford (Genencor) will moderate the panel discussion.
