Dear Boston Israel Cleantech Alliance member:

I am pleased to announce details of our first event of 2009. Dr. Ory Zik, Co-Founder and CEO of HelioFocus, will speak at Harvard Business School on February 10th at 6pm. A serial entrepreneur, Dr. Zik will discuss "Solar Energy Startups: the Israeli Perspective".

HelioFocus is developing and commercializing modular highly-efficient solar thermal solutions. In January 2008, HelioFocus received its first round of investment from IC Green Energy. Its technology is the result of 2 decades of research at the Weizmann Institute of Science and is exclusively licensed to HelioFocus.

You can find more information and register for this event at http://www.meetup.com/boston-israel/calendar/9384939/

This group is not a forum for politics. I have been asked, however, to forward information about a community rally in response to the recent events in the Middle East. The details are copied below.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you on February 10th.

Thank you!

Jonathan
