Description of Business or Organization
In states that have deregulated the sale of electricity/and or gas, CurrentChoice will have an internet marketplace that connects residential and small business consumers with competitive suppliers of these commodities. Our website also provides consumer education on how to successfully navigate in the deregulated market and we provide tools and information that consumers can use to lower the amount of energy they use.
Please describe any patents you hold on inventions or processes and where those are held and when you got the patent.
We recently filed for a U.S. patent on the process we use to aggregate, manipulate and process data.
How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?
Evergreen was the key to the success I have had in starting four great businesses since my graduation in 1979. Three keys to success I learned at TESC: 1) You can figure out anything given the right resources, 2) There is someone out there that knows what you need to know (and can help you!) and you just need to find that person through networks. It may take some time but in the end it will be well worth it, and 3) Believe in yourself. If you succeeded only once, you can succeed again. Failures are a form of learning- figure out what you did wrong and learn from it there is no rule or law that states just because something did not work once it will never work. (Rule 3a is to know when to pack it in and call it a day. That can be very hard to do- but sometimes it is necessary to cut your losses and start over)
