TiE Oregon: Energy Solutions for the Developing World
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

Bringing cost effective energy to the Billions living in primitive conditions

Over 1.6 billion people, upwards of 30% of the global population, are without access to electricity. Electricity advances developmental factors such as small business development, extended working hours, access to communications, enhanced education levels and rural development. Energy can improve life of millions.

In developing countries access to energy remains constrained by factors such as limited access to well adapted affordable technology, fragmented small markets, prohibitive taxes and limited financial resources. On Dec 14th , at the Copenhagen Climate conference the Obama Administration announced a $350 million dollar initiative dubbed “Climate REDI” to promote clean energy technologies in developing countries.

Join us on March 17th for a discussion with our expert panel, on what kind of innovations in products, finance, supply and service can ensure reliable & affordable energy to the billions of poor across the world.

Our 2 presenters Michael(Kipp) Baratoff, Principal, Equilibrium Capital & Patrick Maloney, Program Director, Lemelson Foundation have been fully immersed in this space, having been engaged with social entrepreneurs over the course of their careers. Lemelson Foundation awarded an energy grant to Selco India for it’s Incubation Center and Innovation Department to develop new products and new business models to solve key problems for energy consumers. The SELCO Solar Light Private Limited (SELCO India) is already an important provider of solar systems and cook stoves in southern India, with products that allow rural families to increase their household income while reducing the environmental and health risks of higher-cost kerosene lamps and inefficient stoves.

Our event organizer, TiE Oregon Clean Energy SIG chair, Ravi Sinha, is the Chairman of Choice Solar India Pvt Ltd., company engaged in creative distribution of energy solutions to India's marginalized residents.

Bill Campbell, our moderator for the evening is also a Principal at Equlibrium as well as a TiE Oregon Charter Member and Board Member.

They will bring an insight into problems, economics, delivery & growth of energy solutions.

This event is also a continuation of our theme “Serving the 6 Billion” on which we launched TiE Oregon in 2007. The keynote (watch the video on our website) speaker at the launch was C.K Prahalad, Paul & Ruth McCracken Distinguished University Professor of Corporate Strategy at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, a globally recognized business consultant, who gave a stirring speech about the Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid.

It centers on the proposition that the world's poor can be the engine of the next round of global trade and prosperity and can be a source of innovation.

Second PDC Software Cluster Gathering
Portland Development Commission

This is our second community gathering in the process of identifying the elements the City needs to develop in order to have a thriving software cluster in the Portland region.

Our first survey in April helped identify the critical areas the city needed to focus on in order to build the cluster.

Our second survey in July drilled down into some specific ways to address these areas. At this meeting we will share the results of the July survey: • User group support • Creating a directory of local software companies and coders • Mentoring matching • Software company financing

Software is one of only four clusters that the Portland Development Commission is focusing on, so your input on this topic will have a large impact on what ultimately becomes our region's future for software success.
