Lightbridge Corporation, a US nuclear fuel technology firm, will be one of the presenting companies at CleanEquity® Monaco 2017 on March 9 and 10 at the Fairmont Monte Carlo.

CleanEquity® Monaco is an annual invitation-only event hosted by Innovator Capital, the London-based specialist investment bank. The conference provides an intimate and collegiate setting for inventors and entrepreneurs to share their stories with delegates – key decision makers looking to assist them with reaching their commercial and strategic goals.

Lightbridge Corporation was presented the 2016 CleanEquity Award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Research. After receiving the prize from HSH Prince Albert during the closing ceremony, Seth Grae, CEO of Lightbridge, told Monaco Life, “The investor groups that are at the conference are world class. The 27 companies presenting were clearly very carefully selected and were all of high quality.”

Based in Reston,Virginia, Lightbridge Corporation develops proprietary next generation nuclear fuel technologies for current and future reactors. The technology significantly enhances the economics and safety of nuclear power, operating about 1000°C cooler than standard fuel.

Commenting that the 2016 edition was Lightbridge Corporation’s first time participating at CleanEquity, Mr Grae added, “Part of the nice experience of being here is to be able to meet with European and Asian investors and to hear from the other companies and, unlike other conferences, not to be inundated with service providers.”

CleanEquity® Monaco partners and sponsors include Prince Albert II of Monaco’s Foundation, the Monaco Economic Board, Covington & Burling, Cision, Parkview, Cranfield University, Cisco EIR, Hobbs & Towne and the Social Stock Exchange.
