Entrepreneurs are agents of innovation. Rather than accepting the status quo, entrepreneurs create new products, services, and markets to meet their customers' needs. They are problem solvers, opportunists, and risk takers.
At PERC, we believe these qualities make entrepreneurs the best environmentalists. That’s why we created the Enviropreneur Institute, to empower environmental entrepreneurs in the application of property, contracts, and markets to enhance environmental assets.
The two-week professional development experience gives environmental entrepreneurs, or “enviropreneurs,” the opportunity:
- to learn how property rights and markets can solve environmental conflicts;
- to network and collaborate with other enviropreneurs;
- and to launch conservation businesses and/or policy initiatives.
Whether you are an entrepreneur interested in the environment or an environmentalist with an entrepreneurial idea, PERC's Enviropreneur Institute was created for you. To learn more, watch the video and read our overview page.
The 2014 Enviropreneur Institute will run from July 7-18 in Bozeman, Montana.
The application window for the 2014 PERC Enviropreneur Institute opens December 15 and closes March 17, 2014, at 5 pm. Apply here.
