Marina Del Rey, California (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Earthwise Ventures was one of the presenting companies interviewed at the recent FSXinterlinked Investment Conference held at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey, California.
During the interview, Earthwise Ventures CEO Robert Smith said, "We got into the ferry business because we had been involved in Africa for a long time on the philanthropic side. We took care of a lot of orphans, we were involved in rural developments. And was very clear was, two things. Very few jobs, very broken infrastructure. Mr. Smith added "As philanthropists in the US, we thought 'how do we bridge those two and create job opportunities for the orphans we care of.' In Seattle we build boats and ferries. So we could not only create jobs, but ease the infrastructural burden. So it was just a natural step." EarthWise Ventures, Inc. is responding to the needs by gathering together a consortium of African and American companies in a joint venture to launch a boat manufacturing company in Kampala, Uganda, and bringing ferry service back to Lake Victoria.
The interview was conducted by FSXinterlinked Investment Conference Host, Michael Fugler, and is available on the FSXinterlinked channel on InterlinkedTV and more information is available in the Earthwise Ventures website.
