The Bioroot Energy team is attending the Cleantech Open Academy in San Jose this weekend. The “BE Team” was selected as a Cleantech Open semifinalist from the Rocky Mountain Region, providing our company with an excellent opportunity to tell our clean fuel story to major investors and cleantech entrpreneurs of all kinds. In addition, the team is enjoying a great mentoring experience, working with veteran entrepreneurs and investors to improve our presentations, messages, and pitches to investors.
The Cleantech Open runs the world’s largest cleantech accelerator. This non-profit organization’s mission is to find, fund and foster entrepreneurs with big ideas that address today’s most urgent energy, environmental and economic challenges.
There’s never been a more opportune time to develop an alternative energy company from the ground up to meet the needs of a dramatically changing world.
Or, one could easily understand, it might well be the worst time to start an alternative energy company, especially considering today’s horrible economy. Good thing we’re not looking for a loan yet. Nobody’s lending money, especially to punk startups like Bioroot Energy. Yet, here we are being “contrary” to conventional wisdom: Launching our startup in the midst of a severe downturn, and in the great state of Montana, with under 1 million residents no less.

The entire industrialized world needs sustainable green energy, all it can make, and from wherever and whatever sources it can be made from. As long as those energy sources are truly sustainable and environmentally responsible.
We think there’s no better place to prove ourselves and deliver the right technology to convert our trash and non-crop biomass into clean, green, sustainable and renewable biofuel. If you’re a Bitterroot valley resident, think about what this choice of locations means for a moment. If we can prove our business model here, we can prove our methods, technology and know how anywhere on the planet that it makes good financial and environmental sense.
Towns. Cities. Coal fired power plants. Methane Fields. Landfills. That’s a whole lot of places!
