Hayden has always loved entrepreneurialism. He had a gaggle of small businesses growing up – gutter cleaning, a snack shop, web design – and ultimately started a co-op bookstore in college which challenged the campus monopoly and received a tremendously positive response from students. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree from Pitzer College he received two fellowships – one to look at the impact of tourism on the mountainous communities of Asia, and another to do an MBA at Oxford University. Upon completion of his MBA he accepted a job at Ford of Europe where he helped create and lead an innovation department. After two years he decided to leave the corporate life and moved to San Francisco to explore entrepreneurial opportunities of his own. A few months later he launched ProgressiveRx.com to provide a low-cost option for Americans without health insurance, and launched Progressive Health Worldwide (www.phww.org) the following year to provide free TB clinics for kids in India.
GreenPrint was created in 2005 as the result of frustration over a wasted page with just a URL which was printed at the end of a New York Times article. When he couldn’t find any sort of solution available on CNET or through a Google search, he started brainstorming potential solutions with James Kellerman, a friend from the product innovation department at Ford, who is now GreenPrint’s CTO.
James Kellerman studied Applied Physics and Computing and subsequently completed a Masters degree in Automotive Product Engineering before joining Ford of Europe. His first role was in optimizing electronic engine control systems to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy. Later he joined the Advanced Product Group, leading the development of advanced technology exhibits to demonstrate the excellence and set a future vision for the organization. This work won many plaudits including a prestigious D&AD award for interactive design and a Design Week nomination.
James and Hayden came together in 2005 to start working on the idea of GreenPrint, and James has since been the driving force within the organization for all technical development. He is a leader in the field and has been recognized in Computerworld’s 100 Premier IT Leaders of 2010.
Kent is an environmental technology entrepreneur who has focused his career on building Green Technology businesses. Prior to GreenPrint, Kent was a co-Founder of Verdiem Corporation, which launched as an Oregon-based endeavor in late 2001 and has grown to become the market leader in PC power management software and is now a Kleiner Perkins company. In addition to his role at Verdiem, Kent also managed the 80 PLUS Program from 2005-2006. In that role, he spearheaded a pioneering market transformation program designed to encourage PC makers to integrate highly efficient power supplies into their PC designs. Kent’s work with 80 PLUS not only helped motivate PC manufacturers to move to a higher level of product efficiency, but it ultimately served as one of the pillars of the ENERGY STAR 4.0 computer specification.
Prior to joining Verdiem in 2001, Kent spent 11 years in a variety of public and private sector roles in the sustainability business. In each of those roles, his focus was to foster market acceptance of cutting edge green technologies. Kent holds a Bachelor's Degree in Natural Resources Development from The Ohio State University.
