Tired of working for someone else? Are you thinking about starting your own business and want to have a positive impact on the environment? This course will provide you with a guide to green entrepreneurship and will bring together all of the various aspects needed to build a successful green-related business during these challenging economic times.  Too many entrepreneurs set out to build their dream company, while overlooking critical components – most notably, their vision, brand, mission, and culture.  This course lays out an integrated approach to seamlessly tie together the core values and beliefs of the green-related company; the brand image you want to create; the people aspects of your business (employees, customers, community); the markets you serve; the proper sales approach; the finances; as well as the vision and mission that fuels it all. You will leave with both the knowledge and confidence to be a green entrepreneur with a comprehensive business plan for your new or existing green business.
