PORTSMOUTH -- Back in the spring, the Green Alliance broadened its community and business outreach efforts by hosting a Green Business Learning Series at the company’s downtown Portsmouth headquarters.

Marshalling the expertise of myriad partnering businesses, the GA hosted seminars on topics ranging from effective green branding to brand development, marketing, and effective social media strategies. The events were a resounding success, with dozens of other businesses and community members in attendance.

This fall, the self-described “green business union” is poised to roll out a second Green Business Learning Series featuring a new host of topics.

The series kicks off Thursday, October 18 with “Using Mobile Apps to Grow Your Business.” The forum will be headlined by Alex Bakman, founder of Snappii, a company specializing in mobile phone applications for businesses of all sizes, and across industries and sectors.
According to numerous recent studies, nearly 500 million people worldwide own smart phones, and that number is expected to double in the next few years.

Bakman, a serial technology entrepreneur who founded three businesses that have gone from zero to over $10 million in revenue, says he plans to discuss how these hand-held wonders represent not only a revolution for individual consumers, but for business development strategies and growth as well.
