One thought on “Green Bank To Open In Austin

  1. Wondering if the new bank (“One Earth”) might expect to have some advanced negotiating methods (aka “friendly”) on loans for new product development which come under the “green” banner? Something which would be at the ground level of “coctail napkin” concept?
