ERIC TOM LEE - Eco Warrior
Eric has always loved the great outdoors and is often hiking, mountain biking or some other kind of shenanigans. Eric has long been about efficiency and effectiveness for as long as he can remember and being green was an obvious, formal progression. While working on his Bachelors degree in Business at San Jose State University Eric earned a minor in Energy and the Environment/ Environmental Studies to immerse himself.
Eric understands that it's great to start locally where you can best bring about change but after nearly two decades of entrepreneurship he knew there was something more he could do. During his academic endeavors Eric founded the Silicon Valley Clean Tech Alliance (SVCTA) as a student organization. SVCTA quickly outgrew the Silicon Valley campus and was reorganized as an independent organization - a diverse, leading network of over one thousand individuals driven to help advance clean technology, renewable energy and sustainable living.
Eric's primary focus in clean tech is in renewable energy, green building, housing and transportation. Eric and his team at SVCTA do strategic and marketing consulting for companies who want to reduce their global impact and operate more green. Additionally Eric helps coordinate and facilitate alliances and promotions.
