I wanted to welcome Nick Bruse to Cleantechblog. Nick will be doing a weekly Sunday column profiling new Australian clean technology companies. He launched his first column this week with a profile of two Australian clean coal technologies, and an overview of the state of technology development in the Australian coal industry.
Nick Bruse is the General Manager of Clean Technology Australasia Pty Ltd, the organization that runs the Cleantech Forum. He co-coordinated the Inaugural 2005 Cleantech Forum in Melbourne, and coordinates the Cleantech Dealer Forums. He also established and coordinates the Sustainable Enterprise Network for small entreprenerial businesses in Melbourne.
Nick has a Masters of Engineering and a Masters of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. He is the director of Strike Consulting, an organisation that works with clients to identify and validate opportunities to grow their business successfully. He previously worked for Ericsson Australia as an Investment Manager assessing early to mid stage start-up companies for investment, and while there developed an internal innovation seed fund.
My firm, Jane Capital, does a significant amount of work with energy, environmental, and software technology companies in Australia. As a result, we are excited to have Nick on board, and are looking forward to his column.
