The on again off again nature of the last year brought periods of great excitement and promise coupled with dark days and frustrations. ReVenture was born out of a spirit to go for and achieve great things both in growing the renewable energy economy and expanding sustainability awareness while combating Climate Change. There have been many people that have said to us that we were trying to do too much out of the gate and that we should look to smaller projects and more modest growth. While ReVenture Services has worked to build a customer base with many medium sized companies for LED retrofits, The ReVenture companies, as a whole, have kept their eyes on the major projects that have been in the works for Springfield and Western, Massachusetts for almost two years now. The idea being that these problems that we are all facing, both Globally and on a local level, need to be taken on and resolved boldly. We felt, and still do, that it will be the bold companies that are willing to push the envelope that will play the greatest roles in bringing about the change that must happen for future generations to enjoy the environment we all have today.
This coming Thursday we will be part of a series of announcements at a press conference in Springfield, MA with Mayor Domenic Sarno laying the foundation for an aggressive sustainability plan for the City. ReVenture will have a significant role in this plan. ReVenture Services will be working on LED projects with the City, the Basketball Hall of Fame and many others that we will be able to announce in our first major press release on August 25th. ReVenture Consulting will be entering into a relationship with MGM Springfield and a number of other corporate clients and will work tirelessly to help them achieve top LEED standards for commercial buildings throughout the city. And last but certainly not least, ReVenture Investments will begin planning, procurement of funding and designing the Affordable NetZero homes and residential clusters that we look to build throughout the neighborhoods ravaged by the 2011 tornado.
These are ambitious goals for a young company, but the people, partnerships, corporate allies and resources that we have gained and gathered over the last few years allow us this opportunity. I want to thank everyone who has supported, stuck by and believed in ReVenture and myself over these last few years. Now we plan on repaying you for that belief. See you all on Thursday.
