With a brief stint at Nike he learned about brand building and brand assurance. In the late 90s, Conarro developed over 90 electromechanical robotic calibration laser measurement IoT devices under his MicroTool brand. He sold his company Microtool to (BRKS:NASDAQ) in 2001 and holds 12 patents. Many of Conarro's creations are still used in chip factories around the world today.
Based in Aspen, Colorado, Conarro has built relationships with companies and individuals around the globe, including in England, China, India, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Germany, and consumer manufacturing industries. Conarro has been published in various magazines, moderates the Fusion360 LinkedIn Manufacturing Forum, and sits on local trade school advisory boards. He is presently working with the Navajo Technical University to develop their high speed manufacturing curriculum. When he's not on the factory floor, Conarro enjoys backpacking with his dog, Rosie, in the Rocky Mountains.
"I have reached a point in my life where in this phase I am all about educating the next generation with skills I learned as a young man at the family factory and what I learned from my efforts around the world."

Board Members & Management Wanted
The ANEW Board and team of advisors have worked together for many years. Each of us know each other's strengths and weaknesses. Many of us own our businesses and are entrepreneurs at heart. ANEW is on a growth trajectory that will require "all hands on deck". Diversified human capital is essential. We are confident that we can scale our North American operations, with ROW market deployment shortly after. The work we have done in past years forces us into the Intel Copy Exact engineering environment. Engineers are organizing everything to improve our chances of success. We are seeking team members who can guide our company forward with every aspect of environmental sustainability. Join Us!
Green Bonds Professionals: Green bonds are a financial instrument that are growing dramatically in recent years. The World Bank offers Green Bonds to countries hardest hit by climate change. Since 2008 the World Bank has issued $13B to help fight climate change. While many of these deals appear to be awarded to large government and industries, we believe we can take a $100M bond and flip it in 10 years. Ten thousand micro-grids at $10,000 each could bring thousands of local jobs with secured high-quality assets in mind. We believe Green Bonds are part of our mass scale success. Join Us!
Finance Professional: ANEW has built out modules within our mobile tools that bring vendors, customers, and lenders together to deploy micro-grid technology at scale. Just as Lending Tree has worked to bring customers to various lending institutions, we see smaller, almost micro-loans being assembled and packaged for lending institutions. We are in search of guidance and strategic partners who can help bring sub $10,000 loans out to the masses. Let's bring everyone together while creating new jobs in this sustainability revolution. Join Us!
Trade Professional: International Trade brings jobs to the world. Some of our best deals were with international trading companies like the Marubeni Corporation of Japan. ANEW experiences trade challenges from time to time and we realize we are leaving chips on the table on many transactions. We are always looking for help with cash flow and import-export banks. Our view of the world builds factories in countries that support job creation at the local scene. No one has ever built an open-source factory and distribution solution. This might inspire important discussions with contacts you have across the world. Join Us!
Governmental Affairs Professional: We have worked lobbying as constituents and have successfully changed laws for the better here in our state of Colorado. We understand that governmental affairs at local, state, and national levels are all very important. As the rest of the world adopts new laws to transition their homeland to renewable energy, we need pros who can keep us abreast of rules and regulations in order to maintain a global perspective. We are seeking experts who understand renewable laws, and are willing to stand at the state capital waiting to talk shop. We are working to make a large impact around the world in the field of renewable energy jobs. Join Us!
Marketing Professional: It's important to reach out at scale to get our message across. We should certainly find marketeers who can steer the company. The individual we are searching for has reach around the world. Many of the customers who we are pursuing are not wealthy. For that reason alone, our mobile business operating tools cost must remain low. We have worked on the ground in India, and now understand how different it is to market to Indians than it is to market to Americans. It may require a mix of print, radio and mobile marketing. The markets we are approaching are not complicated but their traditions may not be understood. We are excited to learn more about the countrymen we are partnering with as products and services are rolled out. Our company revolves around Zoho as our business operating system. It would be incredible if we can find a marketing professional who understands these tools that we rely on every day. Join Us!
Fulfillment Professional: With new products being developed behind the scenes, we see a heavy load on our fulfillment center. Kitting and logistics are going to be a spectacular management of madness. Back in the day, one could order a car from Detroit with a custom paint job and features. Now, ANEW is building an energy solution to deal with customization for specific sites and demands. You can even choose colors to match the environment. It's going to be intense, yet with the best fulfillment pros, we think it is all doable. Join Us!
Zoho Jedi Master: With more than 50 million Zoho users on the planet, we are searching for Zoholics who can launch new tools for ourselves, our vendors and our customers without anyone ever knowing. With Zoho One as our backbone operating system at ANEW, we see big Copy Exactly plans to be deployed in native languages. We know a bit about Zoho, yet we also know that Zoho One is so powerful that we have been leaving a lot of technology unwrapped. It's like Christmas Day every day at ANEW when we find a new Zoho function that makes our lives easier. Take us to Zoho warp speed please. Join Us!Training Professional: Zoho One dovetails training modules with human resources to bring independence to learning and access to jobs. Pat spent months on the ground in India working language conversions that took hundreds of language experts to complete the tasks. Things are much different today. Our team has an incredible grip on what modern-day training modules are required to be successful. We are weaving 55+ types of renewable jobs together with training modules in multiple languages. This sounds like a big effort and it is, yet Zoho's Showtime Training Module allows for a conversion into the 26 languages that include: English (US), English (UK), Hebrew, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Arabic, Swedish, Bulgarian, Chinese (China), Chinese (Taiwan), Danish, Dutch, Polish, Hungarian, Turkish and Vietnamese.
