Each day of the conference will be themed after a different element of the triple bottom line.
2021 Theme: Sustainable Entrepreneurship
The global pandemic has been a challenge for all, bringing government restrictions, job loss and a lot of unknowns. We have seen our world turned upside down, forcing people to be resilient and adapt to this new normal. One thing our team noticed, is the amount of innovation that the pandemic has brought. Whether it be drive-by birthday parties or starting your own side hustle in quarantine, people are as creative as ever. Creativity, adaptability, and resilience are all skills that we have learned because of the pandemic and are skills that entrepreneurs innately have. We are bringing entrepreneurship and sustainability together to focus on how they can be used as a force for good when tackling social, economic, and environmental issues.
