Energy Innovation Summit at Gallup this Wednesday, June 16

Omaha June 14, 2010 by Jeff Slobotski

On behalf of the Kauffman Foundation, we would like to invite you to attend the regional summit on Energy Innovation Networks at the Gallup Organization’s Omaha campus on Wednesday, June 16, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Here's more about the event, from*

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is partnering with the Gallup Organization, the City of Omaha and others to hold the event. We are working together in order to encourage new ideas in energy, new pathways for entrepreneurs to succeed, and new models of partnership to advance innovation.

Earlier this month, the Kauffman Foundation organized an Energy Innovation Conference at the White House. This conference acted as a national kickoff for a series of regional events. This upcoming meeting in Omaha will be the first of these regional events. The goal is to build on the discussion and recommendations that resulted from the Energy Innovation Conference, while at the same time, add new ideas to the mix.

You can register by visiting the Kauffman Foundation's summit homepage and using the code "eis" for the username and "registration" for the password field.

Silicon Prairie News will be in attendance, as well as participating in one of the breakout panels during the afternoon.
