Event Description

Plug – loads, the energy used by electronics and appliances, can be as high as 40% of the energy bill of a U.S. households – and still growing. Consumers are looking for easy and affordable ways to reduce this, yet nothing exists to help them that doesn’t require inconvenient behavior changes or lengthy construction projects. With a likely 350MM addressable electrical outlets in US homes, the market is ripe for a change.

ThinkEco has developed a patent-pending, best-in-class device for monitoring and managing electricity at a plug-load level, called the modlet®. Users save at least 10% on their electric bill and payback time is approximately 6 months.

Erika keeps sustainability a top priority at ThinkEco and helps make the modlet a top priority for organizations, customers and partners. Previously, Erika consulted for environmentally focused private investors and online businesses. She worked with the sustainability strategy and marketing firm Green Order and for three years as the Director of Tourism Business and Development for a conservation group in Belize. Erika is the Founder and President of the Harvard Business School Green Business Alumni Association. She earned a BA from Vassar College, a MESc from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
