Bootstrapping to Success
BOOTSTRAPPING: WHY THESE ENTREPRENEURS CHOSE BOOTSTRAPPING INSTEAD OF VCS AND ARE HAPPIER AND RICHER FOR IT
Sustainability: One of the biggest economic opportunities in the 21st C.
Wed., March 21, 2018 – Rockwood SB Woman’s Club – Guests spent an evening with Rob Bernard, Chief Environmental Strategist and Microsoft, and learned why sustainability is no longer just a moral argument made by tree huggers and environmentalist, but one that now has the full throated support and resources of major businesses aligned to solve this problem. The enormous consequences of climate change and human activity are no longer theoretical, giving rise to an entire ecosystem of established companies and startups that collectively seek to solve or mitigate ramifications associated with water, drought, food, energy, and more. In addition to Rob’s keynote talk, attendees participated with panelists Bruno Bertucci of UBS, Jessica Perkins of Apeel Sciences, and April Price of CES who discussed the local challenges that face us, and the emerging opportunities and initiatives some companies and organizations in town are already pursuing.
