Here's how our business plan (outline only so far) is shaping up...

New Ideas:
1. Energy Management for storage and hosting companies
2. "guru.com" for sustainable business professionals - community of professionals with specific skill sets applicable to sustainability
3. The "church" or "cult" of sustainability - seminars, conferences, publications
4. Education/strategy/community/implementation
5. Venture fund/Angel fund - "garage.com" for sustainable businesses
6. Sustainable investment bank
7. Portal linking to commerce and content sites
8. Retail distribution kiosks/handhelds rating products on sustainability.
9. Online mall

We then categorized the above list and our previous list of ideas into 3 categories or potential business units/revenue streams:

1. Consulting Services

a. Define, license, or buy measureable ratings of sustainability, and apply proporietary analysis method in consulting engagements
b. Facilitate definition of decision criteria and management decision making based on sustainability ratings and other key business drivers
c. Sell ratings - content business

2. Media/Marketing
a. Consuct Seminars and Conferences
b. Raise awareness and PR
c. Build portal - linking to content, commerce, and community

3. Incubator/Venture Funding for Sustainable Startups

What do you think? Anything here spark other ideas?
