SJF to hold 2nd Annual Green Economy Summit in September 2010

I’m excited to announce that this September, SJF Advisory Services will again convene a high-energy gathering bringing together diverse groups to share inspirations and strategies for investing in and building the green economy with opportunities for all.  The second annual SJF Summit on the New Green Economy: Accelerating Growth and Impact will take place September 14-15 here in Durham, NC and will again mix leaders from business, government, and the community for terrific cross-sectoral conversations (one of the highlights many people reported from the 2009 Summit).

This year’s event will build on the June 2009 SJF Summit on the New Green Economy: How to Make it Work, which brought SJF’s signature Cleantech CEO Panel (a showcase of unique business models of innovative, fast growing companies pursuing green strategies in mainstream markets) from Wall Street in New York to Main Street in Durham, NC and expanded it to two days and 350 participants.  Some of our inspiring keynotes included Nicholas Parker, Executive Chairman of the Cleantech Group LLC, Jeff Wolfe, CEO of groSolar, Melissa Bradley-Burns, Senior Strategist of Green For All and Martin Eakes, Founder and CEO of Self-Help Credit Union.

The September SJF Summit will focus on Accelerating Growth and Impact and will feature national keynotes and speakers, a central Cleantech CEO Panel, business and community success stories, tips on developing key strategic partnerships, structured networking, and strategies attendees can implement in their own businesses and communities.

Stay tuned for registration information as well as details on speakers and sponsors!
