INOV8 Links: Social Entrepreneurship at Clinton School, G60 Prepares for Fall Run
Football in Iran. (This shot must’ve been taken after they tore down the goal posts…yeah, that’s it.)
Welcome to another Friday, or as our neighbors in Iran might say, the entire weekend. Yikes.
(I think we may have just identified the yin to France’s yang. Or then again, maybe not.)
So, if Friday represents the weekend in Iran, how the heck do they mow the lawn, hit Home Depot plus Bed Bath & Beyond, AND get a game in, all in one day? Ah, the secrets of ancient Persia. No secrets to this week’s Links, however.
We’ve got social entrepreneurship cooking on Tuesday at the Clinton Library, advanced energy was on the agenda in central Arkansas, G60 prepares for its 2013 fall run, and more.
Relish your Friday, have a good (relatively long) weekend, and enjoy:
- The Clinton School of Public Service is hosting a social entrepreneurship conference on Tuesday from 3-6 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Clinton Library. Matt Flannery of Kiva will be there, and Warwick Sabin, the new director of the Argenta Regional Innovation Hub, will moderate. More info here.
- Advanced energy was on the agenda at the Wyndham Riverfront this week. The Arkansas Advanced Energy Association, which includes several IA clients and counts among its board members Doug Hutchings of Silicon Solar Solutions, held its second annual state policy conference. Former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, a national clean energy proponent, was the keynote speaker. He believes Congress has missed the boat on advanced energy.
- Speaking of advanced energy, the UA’s Applied Sustainability Center will host its second annual Sustainable Communities Leadership Summit Oct. 15-17 at the Wyndham. G60 Argenta will kick it off.
- Speaking of G60, IA’s popular pitch contest begins a fall run of dates on Thursday from Russellville, where it will play Arkansas Tech’s beautiful Lake Point Conference Center. Tickets (which are free) are almost gone for this one, so register here. G60 Jonesboro will be held Nov. 8 as part of the IDEA Tech Festival, formerly known as BarCamp Jonesboro.
- The photonics industry provides an economic impact of more than $77 million in Arkansas, according to the newly formed Arkansas Photonics Industry Alliance which includes IA’s Power Technology. More from Arkansas Business here.
- Entrepreurship classes are coming to nine two-year colleges across the state, thanks to the Arkansas Women’s Business Center. More, again, from Arkansas Business.
- IA and ASTA client Vivione Biosciences recently said thank you to its benefactors, both public and private, and talked to AB (who else?) about a potentially big 2014.
- And from Pando, what if all accelerator demo days were replaced by one-year reunions? Well, we wouldn’t have the pleasure of covering things like this, for one.
