E4S Akron networking event: Sustainability inspires innovation

First steps in sustainable business practices often include recycling and energy efficiency projects. But as you learn more about sustainability principles -- natural capitalism, bioimimicry, cradle to cradle design, and more -- you begin to see your business through a new lens that focuses in on previously hidden opportunities and sees new solutions to old challenges. A sustainability mindset inspires breakthrough creativity and innovative solutions to operational challenges, product/service designs, and new business models.

Join E4S on June 10 to be inspired by those who are putting sustainability to work in innovative new ways:

  • Mike Dungan, Co-Founder, BeeDance - Honeybees inspire a new business model
  • John Farber, Headmaster, Old Trail School - Living Systems solve a sewer problem
  • Others to be announced...
RSVP here.
