The future of business (not to mention tremendous profit potential) belongs to the companies that commit to sustainable development.
The Greater Good Academy is an 8-week business development course to train low- and moderate-income entrepreneurs in Denver how to incorporate triple bottom line (3BL) business practices of economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility in order to become more profitable.
The fall 2010 Greater Good Academy takes place at Mi Casa Resource Center (360 Acoma Street) Tuesday evenings – 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. – beginning September 21 through November 9.
Through the support of sponsors, including the Denver Office of Economic Development and the Colorado Enterprise Fund, tuition costs only $125 for qualified entrepreneurs.
