Developer U

“Deploy, deploy, deploy” is the new mantra in global efforts to decarbonize the economy. With significant government funding and a growing stable of technologies, policy and scientific innovation are no longer the primary barriers to advancing climate solutions. Instead, challenges around project deployment and execution – permitting, siting, interconnection, legal and finance structuring, and construction – are the key bottlenecks.


Developer U is a two-day workshop for CEOs and senior executives of cleantech companies navigating the transition from technology development innovation to technology commercial deployment. Participants learn skills and strategy required to succeed and accelerate deployment of innovative, sustainable infrastructure, from project development to project finance. Participants leave with a better understanding of the nature of the challenge to scale up deployment of infrastructure and what tools and resources are required to succeed.

The two-day agenda is presented by Spring Lane Capital alongside guest speakers from leading infrastructure development and finance organizations and CEOs who have lived the project development experience before. Sessions are interactive and provide the opportunity for guests to interact with presenters, guest speakers and their peers.
