Clean Tech Open Video and Pictures

There were a lot of fun things about our week in San Francisco. Winning the National Sustainability Award at the Clean Tech Open (CTO) Gala. Being a finalist for Newpreneur of the Year competition. Seeing many old friends, and meeting new ones. Learning about many new companies doing exciting things. Especially cool was watching a professionally made video about Hydrovolts (as opposed to our home-made efforts):

Thanks to Dia North, Jonathon Angelini and the team at ExpertInABox for putting this together! (Also now on Youtube.)

Here are a few more pictures, from the Pacific Northwest region through the Gala in San Francisco:
