Ecopreneurship

The natural environment is approaching a tipping point. Bold innovations are required to prevent further degradation. Because entrepreneurship combines innovative and forward thinking with action, it provides a strong framework for addressing environmental concerns. In this course, students will learn about environmental sustainability innovations around the world. Deep reading, field trips, speakers, thinking and meaningful discussion form the basis of learning. Active participation is required. Students will explore entrepreneurial paths to improving the environment, individually or in teams. Students are encouraged to engage students outside the class in their projects. Students will present their projects and, if desired, recruit team members and advisors at the Entrepreneurship Summit's Student Fair. Students will continue to develop their entrepreneurial ventures for the Puget Sound Shark Tank event. Students are encouraged to continue to pursue their ventures beyond the class. May not be used to satisfy a requirement in the Business major or minor.
