JOIN THE CLEANTECH REVOLUTION - A Discussion with Chris Flavin and Mayor Reed
Monday, March 23, 2009

Interested in Cleantech Entrepreneurship? Join us as Chris Flavin of Worldwatch and Mayor Reed of San Jose discuss how you can benefit from The Green Stimulus bill and local government incentives.

As the world tries to meet a 100% growth in energy consumption to 26 TW by 2050 while reducing carbon emissions by 80%, an enormous market for cleantech innovation - an order of magnitude larger than technology markets - will be created. “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste” says economist Paul Romer! How can you take advantage of the energy crisis and position yourself to build or be part of the next Google or Cisco of the cleantech world? How can you take advantage of the Green Stimulus package under the Obama administration and incentives offered by local governments to launch or expand your cleantech venture?

Join the Wharton Energy Network (WEN) for its inaugural speaker series in collaboration with the Wharton Club of Northern California (WCNC). President Chris Flavin of the Worldwatch Insitute and Mayor Chuck Reed of San Jose will talk to us about how entrepreneurs, executives and investors can participate in the emerging cleantech revolution. Come and network with other Wharton alumni interested in the cleantech area and learn more about other cleantech events on the Wharton Energy Network roadmap.
