Alternative energy technology and entrepreneurial revolution: powering Indiana’s future!
Last week’s lunch meeting at the Venture Club of Indiana
provided BOTH a spotlight presentation by Al-Gal-Co, a hydrogen power generation technology AND a keynote address by Dr. Kuratko of IU Bloomington’s Kelley School of Business.
Al-Gal-Co promises an alternative to gasoline powered vehicles with its aluminum and water technology that creates clean burning hydrogen fuel. Whether as a retro-fit to cars and trucks, or through mobile, military power generation; Kurt Koehler touted his company’s successes in its seven year development. The intriguing, zero carbon emission energy offers exciting potential with its recycled lifecycle materials model, flexible application from vehicles to electrical generation, and the possible international and domestic markets it could serve. While all innovative energy technology faces hurdles with user adoption, if the price comparisons continue favorably, Al-Gal-Co could stimulate Indiana’s green energy impact!
Dr. John Kuratko of the KSB treated the audience to a passionate talk on the entrepreneurial “Revolution to Evolution.” By using humorous points, personal perspectives, educational facts, and his inspirational delivery, “Dr. K” held the attention of the mix of venture capitalists, aspiring entrepreneurs, business leaders, and motivated students. Key take-aways included:
1) The view of a mindset shift from institutional to individual reliance: where the power of individuals has redirected corporations, institutions, and even the entire economy.
2) The entrepreneurial mindset includes a dynamic process of vision, change and creation that utilizes the leaders’ energy, passion, and implementation skills.
3) The strategic priority of innovation through a people focused approach to utilize the strengths of personnel to improve and transform institutions everywhere.
The final 1 minute video clip on was an appropriate and appreciated finish!
