Venture capital funding is out there and it is showing signs of life in the green world. I read an article today on CNN Money about a company called Hycrete, which makes concrete more sustainable by reducing the carbon-based energy required in manufacturing and using recyclables in the actual materials. Interesting article. If the green industry today is where the computer industry was in the late 70's/early 80's, then both green innovators and green input providers alike are poised for huge growth in the marketplace (Microsoft scored big with the computer and so did Intel by supplying the processor.) I came across an article talking about green inputs being a big market mover...if I can find it, I will post it.
