Terra Lab video:

Sunil Paul (Serial entrepreneur and investor in LinkedIn) first coined the term "Cleanweb" to help entrepreneurs and innovators to leverage information technology to drive massive improvements in global sustainability, economic prosperity, and human well-being.

The revolutionary growth in mobile, social, sensors, processing power, big data analytics, and other information technologies is creating powerful new opportunities to address the world's critical resource challenges.

With the Waze acquisition being described as "perhaps the biggest Cleanweb acquisition to date", we invite you to come and listen how capital efficient, quick-to-market, IT-based solutions are already helping to drive smarter, more efficient energy use, enable the sharing economy, accelerate the adoption of clean technologies, and spread more sustainable behaviors globally.


Anyone active in technology, entrepreneurship, and/or resource issues should join!


Blake's presentation to be followed by Q&A and networking.

"Cleanweb is the most powerful lever available to entrepreneurs hoping to solve environmental and ecological challenges"

Blake's Bio:

A geek entrepreneur at heart, I cut my teeth on Apple IIs, Commodore and Amiga com

Since 2005, I've organized grassroots technology events like Barcamp; was a founding organizer iPhoneDevCamp; and have produced several Facebook Developer Garages. I was also the first recipient of Facebook's fbFund back in 2008. I've been fascinated by alternative energy since reading about Amory Lovins' passive solar home in Popular Science and building my first solar hot dog cooker in the 4th grade.I'm into fitness, nutrition, cycling, cooking and hanging out with my family when not traveling to evangelize Cleanwebputers before AOL and the Internet became the platform for connectivity and innovation. Today, I'm leading #cleanwebmovement which seeks to answer pressing resource issues related to energy, transportation, waste, water and climate change.
