BOOST Presenter Featured in New York Times: RSVP Now for BOOST's Saturday July 12 Free Public Event in Ewing New Jersey

Fairleigh Dickenson University's Sustainable Business Incubator's (SBIF) "Entrepreneur in Residence", Jonathan Cloud, says "Sharing our lives has in never been easier, and never more difficult. The Internet allows each of us to become a broadcaster - to share our ideas, experiences, and passions with the rest of the world. On the other hand, the “creative disruption” of our social environments, by technology, by ideology, and by the unresolved conflicts in the global village we now live in, means that there is no longer a shared reality within which our lives unfold."

Now, Cloud is Growing the Next Generation of Green Ventures in the (virtual) Sustainable Business Incubator, a program of the Institute for Sustainable Enterprise, Silberman College of Business, Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Building Open Opportunity Structures, also known as BOOST, is very pleased to be able to invite members of the general public to hear about SBIF at its second in a series of public awareness forums under its banner Green, Smart, and Sustainable Stakeholder Education and Training series (GSS-SET 2008-09).

On Saturday, July 12, BOOST will host Mr. Cloud for a presentation entitled, "Opportunities in Green Business and Eco-Entrepreneurships". Cloud will join Christine G. Ritter, Program Administrator for the Science Education Program of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) who will present, "Unveiling the Hidden Opportunities for Middle and High School Students: Career Paths in the Sciences". This event is free to the public and take place on Saturday, July 12, from 11am until 5pm at Simply Natural Living at Serenity Plaza, located at 1505 Parkway Avenue in Ewing New Jersey. Please RSVP by calling (206) 202-2883 or emailing

In addition to PPPl's Ritter and SBIF's Cloud, Professor Alvyn Haywood will conduct a viewing and community discussion from his on-going series, "Introducing Abraham: The Secret behind 'The Secret" with a focus on the "Art of Allowing", a special guest, Mut Seshatms for New Jersey’s House of Life, will present "Rethinking Solar: Giving Power Back to the People."

Cloud was recently cited in the June 29 edition of the New York Times, in an article entitled "Now, In an Age of Fossil Fuel, Returning to the Water for Electricity", and July is an very exciting month for BOOST and its growing network, as the organization has been tapped as "New Green Leader" in the Northeast Region's Garden State (New Jersey) by GenGreen (, whose goal "is to 'mainstream green' for all by providing easy access to the resources that make sustainable living easier for everyone on a local level. This is accomplished in a variety of ways from our extensive online network and public events that encourage connection, growth and education through communication, to our online marketplace where people can find the eco-friendly products and services they need to support their sustainable lifestyles."

We invite everyone from all backgrounds and interests to join us on July 12 and learn how we can work together to build a sustainable future for the citizens of New Jersey.
