Everything is going “Green”, why not entrepreneurship ?


An “entrepreneur” is someone who thinks of a new idea or opportunity in business and who takes the risks necessary to convert his or her vision into a reality. Entrepreneurs are absolutely essential to the forwarding of human progress. An ecological entrepreneur is someone who is driven not only by the possibility of making a profit, but is also driven by environmental and social concerns. They want to make the world a better place by improving the environment.

Now that’s something new in this capitalist world, isn’t it ? But to our surprise, green entrepreneurship is getting momentum and many are rising up to it.

This is very important aspect of giving back to society. If every entrepreneur makes an effort to give back to society or at least considers this while making any new decision, slowly world will become much better place in terms of environment and sustainability. It may sound kind of philosophical and too ideal, but if you think about it, it is actually practical and doable. We all need to be aware of it. Also, it is not charity, we are talking here. At the end, one will make money. After all it is business, but with a hint of “green” in it. That’s all.

Whether you’re looking for funding, news, or networking, there are lots of resources out there dedicated to green entrepreneurs. We’ve hand picked some of the best. Check out these resources that can give you the boost you need to be green and successful at the same time.

    This ecological concept is accepted in many industries by self motivation and government laws also.While growing the company they do care for less pollution and better environment.Let us thank the scientists worked and working at present in this ecological project and industrialists and people in general for their care to support.We should try to make this wold zero pollution for our coming generation for better healthy world.

    business on “earth” definitely calls for the “green” if it wishes to sustain itself for long along with it :)

    environmental issues are a global concern and every little contribution helps like instead of printing out ur directions :) send them to ur mobile ..or better yet use maps on mobiles.!!

    This needs contribution from one and all in the organizational ladder. entrepreneurial organizations could have strict policies to enforce “green”ism and make a big difference.

    a happy healthy and clearer earth for everyone. after all that is our biggest Asset.

    By providing new ideas and opportunity, entrepreneurs are doing something for the present society and serving by their own way. Their new ideas make our life better and easy then before.

    I believe by adding some “green” in their work they can craft upcoming society with more happiness and that can becomes a beautiful gift for the next generations.
