Pterofin, one of my favorites from last year that also pitched at ZINO Green Investment Forum 2011, was back with a bigger and better patent-pending design that will allow wind energy to be collected in residential and commercial areas where wind is scarce with their low-impact, oscillating windmill-like winged structure with team members Mariah Gentry, Kayla Krauthamer, Kim Huynh, John Milton, Snow Yang and Wallace Kempkey.
Another impressive company was UrbanHarvest with team members Chris Sheppard and Chris Bajuk which uses hydroponic methods inside greenhouses located on leased rooftops with close proximity to customers to reduce and/or eliminate carbon emissions associated with transporting produce to market.
Big congratulations are in order for UW Foster Business School Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation leaders, Pamela Tufts and Connie Bourassa-Shaw for a very successful 2012 Environmental Innovation Challenge!
