By George Gray Let’s be honest. Some clean technologies just stink. A lot of the time, though, it’s not that the technology has a funky smell but the business has the wrong direction. These misguided projects show some tell-tale warnings that a keen eye…

Where Do You Start?
Elon Musk must be the pinnacle of engineering excellence. Although you could argue there is better engineers out there. There might be but who can argue the impact Elon has made. The impact has been soo large because he was able to successfully package and scale his technologies through business. Yet turning technology into a business is a big step and the last thing you want when you are starting out is a step learning curve. Why not get started learning business before you take the leap. I'm running a Free Webinar next week where you'll learn the crucial business skills you need to balance your stable job and grow your passion project.

We Need More Engineers
The largest problems that we face in the future are not going to be political, religious or ethical. Nor are they going to be legal concerns. When you look at the scientific predictions for the future it becomes much more obvious what these problems are. http://ow.ly/BmhOG #engineering #physics #resources

Technology startups are like seedlings.
They need the right environment to grow. While businesses don't often require the aid of sunlight and water technology businesses often require substantial financial backing to get up off the ground. 
This is why it is vital to watch the investment capital markets and follow the trends to find out what is getting investors attention. 
The markets for clean tech have been up and down over recent years and 2013 was no exception. Because data and reports are dry and boring I decided to spice things up.
To show you the trends across the different clean tech sectors I have created this infographic that shows you where the investment capital has been going! 

Thanks for taking a look! Hope it was of interest to you

It's time to do some research.

No not in the lab, we are going to venture out and talk to people in the real world. 

Have you ever seen some technology that is amazingly creative and novel... BUT doesn't do well in the marketplace.

There is the all to common story of an engineer who created some amazing technology, BUT it didn't sell, because the technology (no matter how groundbreaking) failed to meet someones needs. 

Well I'm going to help you avoid falling into this trap. In today's post you'll learn how to make sure there is a market for your technology.
