4th November, 2010 - Posted by Tex Dworkin - No Comments

With all the excitement surrounding the Green Festival happening this weekend in San Francisco, we almost forgot to tell you about the upcoming webinar “Is Green Entrepreneurship right for you?” which is coming up fast. It will be an encouraging discussion about green entrepreneurship with Kevin Danaher, Green Festival/Global Exchange Co-Founder and inspiring leader in the green economy, and Scott Cooney, the author of Build a Green Small Business and the founder of GreenBusinessOwner.com.

The details:
Date: Thursday, November 11, 2010

Length: 60 minutes

In this hour-long online conversation, Danaher and Cooney will cover:

  • Personal success factors and habits for green entrepreneurs
  • Hot opportunities to start a green business
  • The biggest challenges facing startups and ways to overcome them

Have Your Questions Ready! There will be a Q&A session after the presentation and you can ask your question(s) via chat-room. You’ll be able to participate from anywhere in the world, all you’ll need is a computer with an internet connection.

To participate: Register here.

Investment: Just $15. That’s less than the cost of your monthly gym membership dues, which if you’re like me and rarely go, would be better spent on something like this webinar.
