Minority Business Funders Want To "Grow Green"

Baltimore, MD – Smart businessmen seek relationships with reliable funding sources to grow their business faster.  Savvy funders want experienced small business clients with dynamic growth strategies and good reputations. The high BTU blend of healthy, strategic growth and innovative, reputable funders is the focus of the Green Energy Business Opportunities Conference [GEBOC] panel entitled “Business, Finance & Investment” to be held May 13 from 2pm to 3:30pm at the Baltimore Convention Center. Strong finance leaders with active portfolios of funds will share insight, advise and assessments. Attentive small business entrepreneurs can come away with a roadmap of criteria and finance models.

Leading the dialogue is one of the brightest lights of Maryland’s minority business developers, Stanley Tucker, CEO of Meridian Management Group Inc [MMG]. Moderating the panel, Tucker will set the tone as a nationally recognized innovator in small and minority business finance and development. In his hands, MMG funds more than 500 loans in excess of $87 million to small and minority owned businesses. In addition, he has more than 30 years of diversified business experience blending lending and venture capital investing to develop disadvantaged small businesses. Tucker also serves on the Board of Harbor Bank of Maryland.

Carolyn Green, Josiah Lindsay and Nancy Pfund are presenting panelists drawing from an array of expertise in debt, equity and alternative financing.  This is a group intelligent entrepreneurs should get to know.

“The objective of the Financing and Investment Workshop is to provide clear understanding of the requirements and qualifications established for debt and equity financing in the green economy" said Stanley Tucker, moderator of the panel. “In addition, we will lay the roadmap on where the financial resources are and how to gain access to those resources,” Tucker went on to say.

EnerGreen Capital Management is a private equity firm focusing on late venture and growth stage companies involved in the energy and environmental industries. Panelist Carolyn Green co-founded and serves as a Managing Partner of EnerGreen. With 30 years of experience leading Ultramar Diamond Shamrock, Southern California Gas, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Green also chairs the American Association of Blacks in Energy [AABE] and serves in leadership positions with the Executive Leadership Council’s Energy Sector Working Group and the US EPA’s Clean Air Advisory Council.

Josiah Lindsay serves as a Vice President in the energy team at Fortress Investment Group with over $1 billion in assets. His panel presentation will reflect his professional insight and experience from senior management positions at GE Energy Financial Services and the Debt Product Groups concentrating in project equity in the U.S. power and midstream sectors.

Nancy Pfund brings Managing Partner expertise at DBL Investors to the discussion. The DBL investment fund focuses on delivering strong financial returns together with positive social, environmental and economic impact.  Pfund currently sponsors or sit on the board of directors of several companies, including Tesla Motors, Pandora, BrightSource Energy, SolarCity and eMeter. With a board role at the California Clean Energy Fund [CalCEF] and an advisory board role at the University of California Davis Center for Energy Efficienty, Ms. Pfund brings a wealth of insight to the panel dialogue.

The GEBOC initiative is attracting a broad spectrum of national and regional organizations to help organize experts and industry leaders to share insight, business prospects and financing leads.  Major energy and construction industry representatives; small, veteran, women and minority business owners; and financiers, bankers and investors will gather at the forum led by the President’s Round Table.
