Solar Power Heats Up With Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Martin Roscheisen is the CEO of Nanosolar, a leading solar power innovator that he started in 2002 to make solar electricity mainstream. One of the U.S.' top 10 entrepreneurs under the age of 40, Roscheisen's prior track record includes creating three successful information technology companies that delivered a combined value of more than $1.2 billion.

In 1995, Roscheisen co-founded FindLaw, an Internet legal site, now part of Thomson's (nyse: TOC - news - people ) West Group. In 1997, Roscheisen co-founded TradingDynamics, an enterprise software company, later acquired by Ariba (nasdaq: ARBA - news - people ) for $740 million. A year later, Roscheisen became CEO of eGroups, an e-mail messaging company, acquired by Yahoo! (nasdaq: YHOO - news - people ) in a transaction valued at $450 million.
