WorldChanging reports that Kleiner Perkins, a top venture capital firm, is establishing a $100,000 prize for innovation in green technology.
“This award will encourage innovation in sustainable, green growth,” said KPCB partner Brook Byers. “We will bring worldwide recognition to entrepreneurs who achieve breakthroughs in green energy generation, storage, conservation or policies, whether from an individual or a team, whether public or private, anywhere in the world.”
