TiE-Pittsburgh is hosting a panel on Wednesday to encourage more clean and green businesses in the region. TiE-Pittsburgh Executive Director Berni Bishop Pirollo says the green business leaders in the area take note of the region being behind in green businesses when compared to the rest of the United States. She says this conference is to provide a close of that gap, and to provide networking for graduate business and green technology students to start by using the best business practices. Presenters at the panel include eLoop CEO Ned Eldridge, Construction Junction Executive Director Mike Gable, Plextronics CEO Andy Hannah, Bright Innovation CEO Tom Kulilius and Birchmere Ventures Partner Ned Renzi. The panel costs $30 in advance for non-members, $10 for non-member students and free for TiE members. Pirollo says preregistration is encouraged, and it can be done on tiepgh.org.
