When Business Connect exhibited at the Star-TIDES Annual Technology Demonstration in Washington, D.C. last month, we found ourselves surrounded by businesses and organizations who were there for the same purpose – Sharing To Accelerate Research and Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support – which just so happens to be their acronym. A research effort that promotes sustainable support to stressed populations – post-war, post-disaster, or impoverished, Star-TIDES uses public-private partnerships and “whole-of-government” approaches to encourage unity of action among diverse organizations where there is no unity of command, and facilitates both inter-agency and international engagement.
Needless to say, we found ourselves in like company with businesses promoting sustainable innovations and solutions to help the developing world while we displayed some of the most affordable inventions for those living in extreme poverty situations. Our Vice President of Business Development, Jereme Lambert, met the folks from Emerald Planet who inquired about our business model and solutions to help bring an end to global poverty and soon our CEO and Founder, Lou Haveman, was featured as a guest this past Sunday on the Emerald Planet show.
We are humbled to play our part in making a difference in the world together; bringing clean resources to those who need them the most. We hope you enjoy this video and learn more about how inter-agency partnerships are changing the way we do business. #CreatingHopeThroughBusiness
