Clean Technology & Energy: Advancing Third-World Resiliency
February 16, 5:30-8:30 pm

Tech Sandbox
105B South Street
Hopkinton, MA 01748

Entrepreneurs are on the lookout for new markets in which to test and/or deploy their technology. For social-cause entrepreneurs, these new market opportunities may be located in third-world countries.
Developing as well as selling/deploying them in, 3rd world countries has special requirements: cultural demands, technical requirements, and business models are often unique to each country. NGOs provide important connections and are typically funded by foundations, businesses or private persons with the goal of introducing existing and new technologies to these countries to improve, on a small-scale, the health and the well-being of people who live in remote, harsh conditions and extreme poverty.

Our Panel will discuss these special requirements as well as how to find opportunities for working with NGOs in third-world countries, the types of technologies and applications that are needed and in demand, grants and funding that are available, and practical advice from experts who actually conducted these types of projects in remote villages in Africa, India and others.
