Sustainability for Start-ups: Tips and Tools to Improve Profit and Green Operations
While shipping products or services at a profit is the eternal core of commerce, entrepreneurs in the 21st century face the added imperative of conducting commerce sustainability. And the newest thinking is that sustainability is not merely noble, but can actually increase profitability.
Directly following Earth Day / Week, and in partnership with the Clean Tech Open national business competition, MITEF Venture Lab, for the first time, looks at this new essential to entrepreneurship, with start-up executives who have made green by going green, and a national thought-leader on sustainability in commerce.
