A good article today in Forbes, "Why Small Businesses Should be Adding More Green Jobs", highlights the important role that small businesses play in creating green jobs:

Small business has historically been a powerful engine of job creation and yet it is shying away from one of the biggest growth opportunities of our time: the Clean Economy, broadly defined here to include not only renewable energy, public mass transit, and waste treatment but all goods and services with environmental benefits. The pursuit of environmental business opportunities by small business may hold the key to America‘s elusive goal of long-term, high-income job creation.

The Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) are doing their part to help stimulate and grow the clean economy in Pennsylvania through the Clean Technology Resource Center, which helps businesses develop and commercialize technology products, goods, services, and processes that use renewable energy sources.

One example on how the SBDC is helping is the upcoming TCOMM (Technology Commercialization) conference, hosted by the Duquesne University SBDC on Thursday, October 13, 2011 in Pittsburgh.

The interactive event is designed for entrepreneurs and innovators who want to commercialize new technologies and will feature sessions specifically dedicated to clean technology businesses, including ways to secure financing along with a discussion on the stages of development in the clean technology commercialization process.

Organized in partnership with the Pennsylvania SBDC Clean Technology Resource Center, hosted by the Penn State SBDC, the all-day event will also feature a keynote address from Lalit Chordia, Ph.D., President and Founder of Thar Technologies, Inc.  Thar Technologies develops and delivers green technologies for production in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and electronics industries and Dr. Chordia will detail on his path to success – from the creation of a new idea to commercialization to SBA Exporter of the Year.

Please visit TCOMM for more information.
