I'm excited about taking the MIT/Sloan Clean Energy Ventures: Creating Innovative New Businesses Through Entrepreneurial Management program next week as part of their executive education offerings. So far there are 21 people taking part, including many international executives (Mexico, Denmark, Singapore, ...)
The instructors include Bill Aulet (managing director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship), Daniel Nocera at Harvard University (a founder of Sun Catalytix and the ex-Henry Dreyfus Professor of Energy and ex-Professor of Chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT]. Prof. Nocera was also Director of MIT’s Solar Revolutions Project and the ENI Solar Frontiers Center), Ernest Moniz (MIT's Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics and Engineering Systems; Director, Laboratory for Energy and Environment; Director, MIT Energy Initiative), and others.
In addition to the classrom learning, we will be evaluating clean energy business opportunities at the 2012 MIT Clean Energy Prize. Following the evaluations, there is a VIP reception with the teams and judges. Looking forward to meeting the scientists and mangement leaders setting the standards in the clean energy field.
I intend to Tweet as time permits during these sessions, so feel free to follow @KeithDPatch. Blog recaps to follow in the coming weeks.
