Going green?

You're not alone.

Many of Pittsburgh's brightest and most forward-thinking entrepreneurs are working hard to build businesses that offer technology, expertise and
equipment to help industry and government go green. Many others are supporting them -- or want to be -- with professional services and advice.

Does that describe you?

If so, we invite you to attend the Enterprise Forum's open debate - this Wednesday, January 13th - on how our region can best harness its brains and
brawn for success in green markets worldwide.

Long-time environmental advocate State Senator Jim Ferlo will moderate a panel of experts, drawing on active audience participation, as we tackle the
question of whether the region should harness its regional skills and capital to help retrofit existing structures and systems, or do we concentrate on innovations that can deliver dramatically improved energy and resource efficiencies?

Robert Meeder, President, Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation, will provide an update on some new initiatives and introduce the panelists.

Panelists will include:

Dale Clifford, Assistant Professor, CMU School of Architecture

Holly Childs, Executive Director Green Building Alliance

Deno De Ciantis, Director, The Penn State Center - Pittsburgh, & VP Pittsburgh Green Innovators Board

Tom Lewis III, President and CEO of Lewis Environmental Services, Inc.

Tim McNulty, CMU Associate Vice President of Government Relations

John Werling, President and one of the founders of eCap Network, LLC

The Enterprise Forum is Western Pennsylvania's leading networking organization for entrepreneurs. Co-sponsors of the January 13th event are the Pittsburgh Green Innovators, Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation and The Green Building Alliance.

Going green? Share you insight while you make valuable networking contacts.

It'll be this week's must-do event.
