About Greg

I founded Solar Greens Company in June 2012. This is my 6th startup (broken by a 12-yr stint at Fortune 500 company Sun Microsystems): DAVID Systems, ParcPlace Systems, Magnolia Road Internet Cooperative, Terma Software Labs, Solar Gardens Institute. One went public. One purchased. One failed. Three still private.

Solar Greens Company has developed 6 protypes of a small footprint, solar powered, rainwater collecting, intelligent green house. See the crowdfunding (probably Kickstarter) video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tl5gf1aALZQ and peruse https://www.facebook.com/MyTerraceFarmer or http://terracefarmer.com/

Although a dozen advisors joined my Solar Greens Company brain trust none have stepped forward to match my self-funded capital. I need co-founder(s) with a passion for social venture with strong financial & manufacturing background compatible with mine.
