Sustainable Business Panel

Sustainable Business Panel

The Sustainable Business Panel was held to foster innovative thought in the area of business environmental sustainability. The panelists were local sustainable business owners who spoke about how they got started, what challenges they faced, and what advice they had for young entrepreneurs. Students learned about the ways in which they themselves can begin such businesses, and the benefits of doing so. The panel ended with an announcement of a sustainable business competition for students.
