Northwest Energy Angels were pleased to welcome Jeremy Hux, Head of Clean Technology at Credit Suisse, to our May Member Lunch. Mr. Hux delivered an enthralling and detailed keynote address followed by a lively Q&A session.

As the academic year comes to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our current class of Marketing and Due Diligence Interns! Without their commitment and participation, NWEA would not be able to offer the quality experience we provide to our members and entrepreneurs. Please take a moment to review our graduating interns’ profiles. They are all looking forward to leveraging their recent experience with NWEA in new and exciting ways. If you can help them connect with a relevant person or organization, please don't hesitate to do so. They would sincerely appreciate your guidance in connecting with their industry of choice. This is the best way we can thank them and ensure a high-quality class of new intern applicants for the fall.
