2016 Enviropreneur Institute: Apply Now

Friday, March 4, 2016

PERC is searching for a new class of innovative environmental entrepreneurs, or as we call them, enviropreneurs. In our experience, recommendations from alumni and friends of PERC make the best candidates.

The Enviropreneur Institute offers an in-depth look at the most important topics for entrepreneurs, while exploring how start-ups and businesses can tackle environmental issues. The Institute is a six week program, with five of those weeks spent participating in a personalized remote accelerator where advisers will provide specific skill-building sessions. This will be followed up with one week in Bozeman, Montana where enviropreneurs come together, share their experiences, and put their businesses in motion.

The Enviropreneur Institute will be its most successful if applicants have a jump start on their business venture or idea.

If you know creative and eager enviropreneurs who could benefit from this program, please encourage them to email [email protected]
