GreenBeat in pictures: John Doerr, Vinod Khosla, and more

VentureBeat held its big cleantech conference this week, GreenBeat 2010, at Stanford University. Our lead green writer, Iris Kuo, has already reviewed one of the conference’s big themes — that data may be the next big wave in cleantech.

Looking beyond the ideas, here’s a gallery of photos from the event, taken by Dean Takahashi. In the image above, VentureBeat founder Matt Marshall welcomes attendees to the conference.

This is probably a good time to mention once again that GreenBeat wouldn’t have happened without the event’s sponsors and especially our co-hosts, SSE Labs.
