Voices of the Entrepreneurs
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EST
Join the World Resources Institute (WRI) and New Ventures for the launch of “Voices of the Entrepreneurs,” a publication that gives voice to a group of extraordinary people who are dedicated to creating environmental benefits through successful commercial enterprises.
Learn about their challenges. Be inspired by the solutions. Join the effort to scale environmental entrepreneurship across the world.
Hear firsthand one entrepreneur’s story and engage in a discussion led by experts from the international development, capacity building, impact investing, and philanthropic communities about how different stakeholder groups can enable greater success of environmental entrepreneurs
WRI is a global environmental and development think tank that goes beyond research to create practical ways to protect the Earth and improve people’s lives.
