Ecopreneur Evolution promotes peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, and will help to build effective, accountable and justice-oriented institutions at all levels by guiding leaders into the triple bottom line philosophy of having their sustainable businesses operate in accordance with people, planet and profit.
Where we serve Ecopreneurs in their growth
We are not a traditional exelerator. We take Ecopreneurs with ideas and help them become sustainable profitable start-ups. We are a system for Ecopreneurs, not to give them the answers but support in the creation of their solutions to get them off the ground.
We want to help close the gap for opportunities to growth in the entrepreneurial sector by supporting with education, accountability, community and finances and opening a global distribution network to increase market potential from local to global.
We serve early stage individuals focused on creating a sustainable business but lack the education, resources, and support to getting their business to a point of access to institutional support.
