PERI Software to participate in the California Utilities Diversity Council's 2010 Green Diversity Summit
"When I founded PERI Software in 1999 my goal was to make it one of the world's leading technology companies," said Sarav Periasamy, PERI Software, who is scheduled to speak at the Summit
PERI's broadening of its products and services portfolio stems from critical attention to customer needs and market fluctuations. "All the changes we made over the last 10 years are due to how the market has been and what our clients have been doing with their technology," he said.
Periasamy will join more than 800 invited policy makers, educators, industry experts, labor leaders, investors, business owners, and community organization leaders are expected to participate in the California Utilities Diversity Council's 2010 Green Diversity Summit.
According to the conference organizers this timely statewide summit will be the first green energy conference to directly address diversity. It will provide a first time opportunity for discussion of solution strategies that can generate tens of thousands of green jobs for all California. It will promote programs to increase green job training and education, as well as programs to stimulate green business development.
The primary goal is to broaden the understanding of how the transition to a clean energy economy can bring green investment and contracting opportunities to entrepreneurial woman, minority, service-disabled and veteran-owned business enterprise (WMDVBE) business owners. The Summit will also benefit underserved and underrepresented communities through green workforce education, training and green job creation.
"PERI is a green company and is always conscious about the environment, which is why we are consistently developing software to help save on energy and operation costs from smart grid technology to numerous business solutions," explained Periasamy.
Successful enough to stay afloat, despite the early years of maturity and adaptation, PERI - which has never received any outside funding and grown entirely on its own revenue - has provided Periasamy with the perfect proving ground for his entrepreneurial instincts. If anything, he looks back on prior mistakes as the catalyst that provided him the knowledge to stabilize the company as it moved forward.
