"For many years, we have assisted project developers with business plans, feasibility studies, techno- economic analysis, and project presentations to investors. On the other side, we have provided due diligence and project oversight for investors in these types of projects," says CEO Wayne Lee. "What we have observed during these many years is that having credible third parties assisting in the presentation to investors significantly increases the chances of favorable funding decisions."
Lee Enterprises Consulting's COO, Dr. Terry Mazanec agrees. "We have several very high profile experts like Adm. McGinn within our group, and have come to realize that it might be very advantageous for some clients to have these experts take a more active role in both evaluating their projects and presenting them to investors."
LEC Finance Section EVP, Glenn Farris, believes that investment in bioeconomy projects is currently showing signs of significant upward growth. "We are seeing quite investors and funds having directives to make more investments in renewables,"
