Vanguard Minerals, Inc., a strategic management consulting and business development firm with core competency in emerging growth companies, recently announced that it has launched GreenZone Ventures, a new venture capital and incubation division.

With a primary goal of identifying, investing in, partnering with and supporting companies in the “green energy” industry, GreenZone will target bio-fuels and emerging technology companies in the start up through third round phases of business. Woody Junot will head the new division and provide consulting services by the start of the third quarter of 2010.

“We are forming this division to address a significant void in the renewable energy industry, where there is a lack of support for early-stage companies, stated Jim Price, chief executive officer of Vanguard Minerals, Inc. “Our view is that new energy technology is a crucial market where Americans can exhibit our innovation and drive for success.” Mr. Price continued, “We are confident that some of the greatest opportunities of our lifetime lie in the minds and business plans of entrepreneurs throughout our country. Our intent is to foster continued innovation and provide a resource for companies that deserve a chance to grow.”
