Greater Good Academy Winter Session Begins Feb. 22
OED is supporting sustainable entrepreneurship this year as a returning sponsor of the Greater Good Academy. The academy’s winter 2011 session begins Feb. 22, and registration is still open.
The Greater Good Academy is a hands-on business development training program for low- and moderate-income entrepreneurs interested in applying sustainable and triple bottom line business strategies to make their business more profitable. The academy helps civic-minded entrepreneurs from underserved communities secure the resources they need to succeed and scale their ventures. The program focuses on building companies that are engaged in their communities, environmentally conscious and financially successful.
Participants will learn from Denver’s top sustainability experts how to build a company that supports both the community and the environment all while generating revenue. At the end of the eight-week session, each entrepreneur will have a working “triple bottom line” embracing people, planet, and profit that defines their mission, unique product or service, financing strategy, operations and marketing plan.
The academy is conducted in partnership with many of metro Denver's leading business development organizations, including the Denver Metro Small Business Development Center and is supported by the Denver Office of Economic Development, Colorado Lending Source, UMB Bank and Colorado Enterprise Fund.
The academy costs $175 and is being held at the Mi Casa Resource Center, 360 Acoma St. To register, or to find more information, contact Richard Eidlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-478-0131.
