The Pope was in Israel earlier this month, bringing with him thousands of Catholic pilgrims. A week later 40 investors from the California region came on a different kind of pilgrimage to Israel – to see the world-famous clean technology opportunities Israeli entrepreneurs have to offer.

Despite the poor US economy, American investors see the down market as a business opportunity, and Israeli clean technology companies in renewables, water and energy are on their radar.

Among the participants in the clean tech mission to Israel are some of the biggest names in the California investment community including Atiq Raza, former COO of AMD and now at Khosla Ventures; George Coelho a managing partner for Good Energies; Josh Green, a general partner for Mohr Davidow Ventures; and Michael Allman, the CEO and president of Sempra Generation.
