Show Notes

In the first two episodes of this series, we heard from startup finalists who participated in last year’s program about their sustainability solutions, their experience with the program – including making strong industry connections and some securing funding, and advice for startups participating this year.  

In this third and final episode of the SEMI Startups for Semiconductor Sustainability series, you’ll hear about the journey ahead for the semifinalists of this year’s Startups for Semiconductor Sustainability program.  SEMI just announced the semifinalists for this year’s program. You can read about it here. 

You’ll also hear from two of the VCs who make this program tick. They explain how they came up with the concept for a start-up pitch event, and how they collaborated with SEMI and VCs across the supply chain to make it happen. You’ll hear about the process and the benefits of participating in this event. 

As an attendee of SEMICON West, you’ll find out how to take in the program and learn about the sustainable solutions of this year’s startups.
