When: Today, Thursday, January 30, 2014, 1:30 p.m.

Where: Fairfield University Accelerator and Mentoring Enterprise (FAME) business incubator program suite, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, Conn. **Enter the FAME Suite from the rear of the Fairfield University Bookstore parking garage off of Sherman Street; drive up the ramp to second floor parking. Ramp is diagonally across from 69 Sherman Street. 

What: Bill Finch, Mayor of Bridgeport; people from the energy industry; and FAME client Daphne Dixon will gather to talk about the value of sustainability to the region. What is being discussed are the workshops that Dixon, of Fairfield, Conn., will be organizing to share the latest sustainable energy products and services available to municipalities.

Dixon, one of the inaugural clients of the FAME incubator, founded 'Conscious Decisions,' a socially responsible business venture, to educate the public on sustainable and eco-friendly living practices. Dixon has been working closely with sustainability leaders, businesses, organizations, and community members to raise awareness about resilient communities and to engage people in green living practices. She founded the annual Fairfield County Green Faire, the Fairfield County Green Coast Awards, and is co-founder of the Green Market Exposition.

Why: FAME, a unique business incubator program, is a collaboration of Fairfield University's Charles F. Dolan School of Business, the Town of Fairfield Economic Development Department, and Kleban Properties. FAME is offering budding innovators the tools they need - from guidance to funding to prime downtown office space - to turn their ideas into realities. It also aims to foster local and state economic growth.
