Impact Investing Night 2016: Keynote Speaker
Each Watson semester is an intensive fifteen week program in which scholars receive weekly mentorship and coaching sessions, free international legal support (through a partnership with Thomson Reuters), training in the hard skills and frameworks to take their ideas to the next level, and a community of peers that will last far beyond Watson. We aim to be the Olympic training ground for next generation change makers and you can expect the experience to be both challenging and fun. Below are four key elements of each semester. Speaker Eric Glustrom, Watson University’s founder, will be discussing how to measure the impact of an investment.

Revolution Systems develops and sells the Revolution, a sorting line that is configurable, scale-able, self balancing and upgrade-able. Incumbent suppliers offer specially designed systems on a project basis that are elegant, but expensive and rigid. Revolution Systems’ focus on local communities and businesses, has resulted in an affordable system that can grow and adapt as the needs of the program change. Focus on smaller markets and creation of a flexible product allows us to achieve scale more easily than our competitors, reducing product cost to put recycling within reach of small communities and businesses.

Wave Solar is making an Impact with our Solar Steam Engine. A complete energy system for your home or small commercial building that provides electricity, heat, hot water and air conditioning, all from solar thermal panels plus natural gas. Given the back-up energy, the system will work in bad weather without storage, or work all night long as a back-up generator if the power grid is down. One percent of our systems will be installed for free in schools in third world countries. These systems will be reconfigured to purify dirty water into drinking water, provide a refridgation for a school, and run off garbage as a back-up energy source. Learn More Here
