Last year when the Detroit automakers went to Washington to ask for a bailout I wrote a blog post suggesting that rather than bail out businesses that don't seem to want to change the government should look to help entrepreneurial car companies. With the kind of money the automakers were asking for I suggested that these start ups, like Tesla Motors, could buy some of the closed auto plants. Now it looks like energy companies are doing just that, according to a story over at Bnet.

Join us next week for this fall's first Green Business Networking event. We will meet Sep 10th from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm on the second floor of the Tate Center (enter through the Beatty Center, 5 Liberty Street). Our hope for the monthly event is to bring together a variety of knowledge, skills, motivation, and expertise to share ideas about helping businesses be more environmentally-friendly, starting new sustainable businesses, finding employees/employment and generating general networking contacts here in Charleston and the Lowcountry. Come out and meet like-minded representatives from local businesses and organizations plus CofC students, alumni, staff and faculty. If you know anyone that might be interested, please feel free to pass this along to them, or just bring them with you.
Also, join us on LinkedIn, http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=1786534. The group was set up to allow the networking to continue virtually in between our monthly events. Please feel encouraged to join the group and share what you are doing, ask or answer questions about green business or share interesting news articles.
