The investment climate for clean tech companies is currently very favorable. In 2006 alone, $1.28 billion in VC money was invested in 140 companies. The amount invested in this sector was the highest since 2001 and was double that of 2005. In this episode, Bambi and Tony Perkins highlight some of the current trends in the clean tech field, and introduce some of the clean tech players on Vator.tv. Featured in this episode are the founders of Greener and Techtain.
