Before you go, here are some networking tips for your next clean tech event


If your goal is to grow your connections, navigating events requires a blend of strategy and sincerity.

Focus on meaningful engagements rather than sheer volume. Arming yourself with knowledge of current trends, preparing insightful questions, and showing a willingness to listen are your best tools for making lasting connections.

Make the most of your experience with these helpful networking tips:

  • Define your purpose: Whether it’s forging new connections, acquiring knowledge, or both, setting clear goals will guide your focus and activities throughout the event.

  • Do your homework: Look into the event’s agenda to identify must-attend sessions and notable speakers. This preparation ensures you don’t miss key learning and networking opportunities.

  • Craft your pitch: Develop a succinct and compelling introduction for yourself. This should highlight who you are, what you do, and what makes you stand out, making every first impression count.

  • Stock up on business cards: They're not old-fashioned; they're tangible tokens of introduction. Make sure you have an ample supply to exchange, facilitating a smooth follow-up.

  • Take initiative in conversations: Don’t wait for others to approach you. Be bold and initiate discussions, showing your interest and openness to new connections.

  • Follow up promptly: After the event, reach out to the people you’ve met. A quick message or email can help cement your new connections and open doors to future opportunities.

  • Stay active on social media: Engage with the event and its participants on platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter before, during, and after the event. This visibility can enhance your presence and attract more connections to your network.
