• Green Week At Pratt

    Environment, Industrial Design

    Short notice, I know...but Paul Polak is giving the keynote address at Pratt's Higgins Hall on Thursday the 27th at 6pm.

    Mr. Polak founded International Development Enterprises which is a great organization that designs solutions that address root causes of poverty. His products include a $25 treadle pump and small farm drip-irrigation systems priced as low as $3 which helped increase poor farmers' net income by $288 million annually. IDE received a $14 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation in 2006, and in 2004 it received Ernst & Young's "Entrepreneur of the Year" award in the social responsibility category.
