Succeeding in the Green Economy: Lessons learned from Canadian clean growth entrepreneurs

The global economy is in the midst of a transformation towards a new, low-pollution model built around clean innovation. Canadian entrepreneurs in different sectors across the country, both big and small, are beginning to succeed in growing businesses that build a cleaner economy. They're demonstrating that such a shift is possible, but only if we provide the right conditions for success.

Join us in Vancouver for the first of four free public panel discussions hosted at business schools across the country. Come together with entrepreneurs, students and established leaders to explore Succeeding in the Green Economy: Lessons learned from Canadian clean growth entrepreneurs. Our event host is the UBC Sauder School of Business’s Centre for Social Innovation & Impact Investing.

The panel will be moderated by:
Mike Moffatt - Senior Director of Policy and Innovation at the Smart Prosperity Institute, Assistant Professor in the Business, Economics and Public Policy group at Ivey Business School, Western University

Participants of panel:
Meredith Adler - Executive Director, Student Energy, member of the Smart Prosperity Leaders' Initiative
Mark Rabin - Founder and CEO of Portable Electric
Bryan Buggey - Director, Vancouver Economic Commission

The discussion will revolve around potential clean growth economic opportunities, sharing local clean economy success stories, and providing advice for students and entrepreneurs looking to develop their ideas or advance their careers.

Stick around afterwards for Student Energy UBC's Enerbeers, where those interested in discussing environmental issues and passionate about shaping the future of energy can connect with those in the energy sector.
