In February, Broadscale hosted its 2018 Kickoff Event at Bloomberg's New York offices with some very special guests. 

Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide, spoke to us about the current state of news, politics, and world affairs - including a certain former reality TV show host. 

Other thought leaders -- Steve McBee, former CEO of NRG Home; Gil Quinones, CEO of NY Power Authority; Adam Zurofsky, Deputy Secretary for Energy and Financial Services in Governor Cuomo's office -- were just a few of the other great speakers who shared their insights on the ever-changing energy, innovation, and policy landscape. 

Startups, Innovation, and History in Israel 

Last month, I co-chaired the Business Leadership Forum at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The event's theme, "100 Years of Knowledge," highlighted Israel's innovation and start-up community while celebrating the school's centennial.

Highlights included talks by tech guru Yossi Vardi and historian Yuval Noah Harari, and a visit to Einstein's archives.

While in Israel, I visited a number of exciting startups, including our portfolio company Via, which has expanded globally this year with deployments in London, Berlin, Singapore, Australia, as well as California.

Strategic Partnerships and Exits

Over the last 5 years, we've selected nearly 100 growth companies to present to Broadscale’s corporate Network. These innovators have gone on to raise roughly $2 billion, establish key strategic partnerships, and create value for their customers, shareholders, and society.

In May, Nokia acquired SpaceTime Insight, an IoT start up that provides predictive analytics. CEO Rob Schilling presented to our Network in September 2016.

Last month, Siemens acquired Comfy, a smart building platform that allows users to control temperature and lighting efficiently. CEO 
Andrew Kriouskov presented to our Network in June 2014.
