If you are like me and most people in America, you would not have heard of John Doerr before reading this post. However, you will remember the name from today onwards after watching the video below. John is one of the country’s most successful tech-space venture capitalists with Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield, and Byers. His successful company investments include Google, Netscape, Amazon, and Sun Microsystems to name a few, and he now sits on the board of many a Fortune 500 tech company.

But for me, John is very much a hero because of his involvement in the Green Tech space and his campaign for environmental chance. John recognizes the immense potential in the environmental space, both for socially responsible action and financial profit. The video below speaks largely for itself, and so I’ll stop rambling now. At MakeMeSustainable we have been pointing to the “green is green” phenomenon for some time; but, you don’t have to take this young entrepreneurs word for it…listen to John. It is 20 minutes well worth watching.
