Richard has more than five years experience researching cleantech innovation, venture capital markets, and start-ups across Europe and Globally. He is a regular keynote speaker at major cleantech events and is the driving force behind the annual Global Cleantech 100, a list of the World's most promising private cleantech companies, and authors periodic reports, such as The Rise of the Corporation in Cleantech.
