Tomorrow Matters is a revolutionary event. But what’s on the agenda?


Tomorrow Matters aims to connect the amazing innovators in environmental tech to investors, educators, and the public. This unique event is packed with networking opportunities, engaging panels, and open discussion. Taking place on October 26th in London, this is an unmissable event!


So, why environmental tech? In a fast-changing, disastrous situation, our future could rest in the hands of start-ups and researchers working to adapt technology to the climate crisis. These solutions aim to not only lessen our negative impact on the environment, but create alternative routes to completely erase harm at the source. Between deadly heat waves, wildfires, food shortages, drought, and increasingly-terrible natural disasters, the planet’s change is making itself present in all of our lives – and we need to act.


As the climate changes, we have to keep up with it. Adaptation is a constant in technology – especially environmental tech. The sector is expected to reach $44.4 Billion by the year 2028 and is forecasted to continue to grow, exhibiting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.4%. With such a massive amount of growth just in the last few years, interest and awareness are more important than ever. 


Tomorrow Matters is a content-packed conference that brings environmental solutions directly to investors and the public (the ones that can really make something amazing happen!). Between product exhibitions, panel discussions, and stand-alone presentations, networking breaks take priority, giving you the opportunity to get your foot in the door with new (and old) connections. TM is designed for the entire sustainability value chain, providing an exclusive platform for participants to share and gain insight of the entire sector – that means that, just by attending, you’ll be involved in creating a better tomorrow.


We have a lot in store for the conference already! Here’s a sneak-peak:


Panels:

  • ‘Powering Tomorrow’


This panel analyses the importance of maintaining renewable energy as an economically sustainable venture. This includes an in-depth look at costs, payoffs, profits, and overall pros (and cons). Renewable energy is, without a doubt, vital to our future on this planet, but what does it fully entail as a venture? Insight will be given on this stage from industry leaders, founders, and CEOs, aiming to dissect the overall state of pursuing renewable energy.

  • ‘One World’


‘One World’ takes on IP – specifically, establishing an effective and pragmatic IP management and protection strategy in a global industry. By elevating technology (especially environmental tech), connections are made around the globe. This means that protection is more important than ever, especially with the future on the line. 

  • ‘Owning It!’


This session looks at the key areas for collective action taken by the public and private sector. Three facets are included: the main areas of activity; the key requirements for pragmatic execution; and a run-through of the current available government funding and support.

  • ‘Pitching Green’


What makes a fundable venture in Environmental Tech? There are always ups and downs when starting a new journey. Learn all about the different sides to investment from a panel of successful founders and investors – this opens up the floor for discussion, aiming to confront the worries some might have about starting their own venture.

  • ‘Get Some Green in Your Wallet’


Now digging into the truly nitty gritty – this panel focuses on the DOs and DON’Ts of green investment. Feeling out of your depth? Maybe have one-too-many concerns floating around behind your yearning to help the planet? Learn from a panel of environmental tech on how to invest in a better tomorrow – this booming industry has been proven to be not just a good move for the environment, but a great one for wallets (if done right). So, let’s analyse what makes a success!


Investment Pitches


Live investment pitches will be taking place in the afternoon. Three start-ups will be presenting their cases for 15-minutes each.


Roundtable Discussions


Barriers are made to be broken. We’re bringing the “big dogs” off of the stage and down to you – the floor in these sessions is open for questions, debate, and general discussion on the key points of environmental tech.This forty-minute session opens up the path for solution and action through communication. This is a unique opportunity to truly get to know the minds and power behind green technology – on a personal level.


Networking Opportunities


Between the panels, discussion, and presentations, we have dedicated networking coffee and lunch breaks. These slots don’t just provide refreshments, but opportunities to meet like-minded people and professionals. Making connections can be your key to getting a piece of this thriving sector, and we want to encourage that! Besides coffee and snacks, we’ll start the day with breakfast and end it with a drinks reception – make new acquaintances, re-meet old colleagues, make those connections, and – most importantly – have fun!
