It sounds like IRIS has a great technology on its hands. I'm not so sure
about the marketing side. But as far as sources of investment and
perhaps overall assistance with a business plan, I'd try the following
EPA's Jobs Through Recycling Program
The Social Venture Network
The Sustainable Jobs Fund
Now the fourth largest community development venture capital fund in the
US, the fund has $17 million to invest in sustainable enterprises that
create jobs for low income individuals.
Amy Perlmutter at the Chelsea Center in Massachusetts may also have
ideas. See her address above.
I suspect Gary Liss would also have some good suggestions. Also see
Good luck and please share your progress with members of GreenYes.
