Green Building
Date: November 08, 2008
"Green Building: Where are Spaces for Entrepreneurship in Green Building?" Caltech/MIT Enterprise Forum. With the carrot in place and the stick coming, the industry is set to explode and it is huge: green building runs the gamut from high tech to innovative uses of low tech in order to reduce environmental impact, energy use and GHG, the ultimate goal being zero net energy use and no GHG emissions. Methods employed in green building include using recycled building materials, more efficient insulation, lighting, wind and solar power. The opportunities for entrepreneurs are here now and more are coming, but what are they? And how does a green building startup receive funding? To answer these questions, the Caltech/MIT Enterprise Forum is bringing together entrepreneurs, investors and builders to discuss the needs of green building and opportunities for innovation in order to bring the U.S. closer to a sustainable economy while turning a tidy profit. Speakers include: Lance A. Williams, Ph. D. , U. S. Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter; Roberto Alvarez, Light Prescription Innovators; Dr. Yan Xiao, USC; Eric L. Miller, Mohr Davidow Ventures. See
