This innovative new four-day program is designed to enable business executives, entrepreneurs and government officials to more effectively encourage, lead and manage the entire venture creation process for energy-be they stand alone new ventures or pioneering undertakings inside of larger organizations. The process includes identifying opportunities, generating new ideas, designing a holistic solution, and building a viable, significant, and sustainable new energy-oriented business.
