Dec. 9: An Open Discussion About Biomimicry

Part of the Cleantech Dinner Discussion Series
Tuesday, December 9
6:30-8:30 pm
Asheen Phansey, President, Quaking Aspen LLC
Free for Net Impact members, $5 for non-members
Location: Clear Conscience Cafe 581 Mass Ave (Central Square), Cambridge

Fresh off another well-received panel presentation at the Net Impact national conference, your friendly neighborhood biomimicry practitioner will host a dinner discussion about Biomimicry, or Nature-inspired design. Unlike previous Biomimicry talks to Net Impact and other audiences, this evening will involve no slides or prepared materials — instead, this is your chance to ask your questions and air your concerns or confusions about Nature-inspired design in a casual atmosphere over sandwiches and (fair trade) coffee. After a brief introduction to the topic, you may guide the discussion wherever you’d like.

Asheen Phansey has been consulting in and speaking to national audiences about Biomimicry since early 2007, at the Net Impact national conferences in Nashville and Philadelphia and elsewhere to audiences in business, architecture, design, engineering and other disciplines. He recently joined the faculty at Babson College as an adjunct professor of Entrepreneurship, where he’ll be teaching the nation’s first MBA course in Biomimicry called “Sustainable Entrepreneurship Inspired by Nature”.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to Asheen at asheen(at) to reserve a seat. Please note the nominal fee of $5 added to dinner costs for nonmembers.
