Government Stimulus for the Clean Energy Sector

Steve Perricone, BioFuelBox
and Jennifer Scott Fonstad, Draper Fisher Jurvetson

At the time of this lecture, state and federal stimulus dollars for clean energy had been promised, but specific terms for who would receive those dollars had yet to be defined. Steve Perricone, Co-founder of BioFuelBox, talks about his fruitless trip to Washington, DC and the decisions being made surrounding the funding of clean energy. And, Jennifer Scott Fonstad, Managing Director of venture capital firm DFJ, discusses the necessity of companies like BioFuelBox to establish a consortium of both industrial food waste producers and those on the energy side. Her hope is that a collective effort will prove that a network of new technologies in energy could provide numerous jobs and other revenue opportunities.
