What is an Ecopreneur?
An “ecopreneur” is an entrepreneur (or intrapreneur/leader) focused on creating and selling environmentally-friendly products and services. Ecopreneurship is a new way of doing business – a way to create sustainable business models, and work together with and for the environment. We believe that ecopreneurs could and should take a circular and systems view to business, and will not need a traditional business case to do the right thing. We also strongly maintain that ecopreneurs should consider intersectionality, and recognize inequality; the fact that environmental destruction largely impacts marginalized communities.
