Sometimes all you need is the right connection and a little inspiration. Come find both at our monthly networking event.
Theme: Beyond the B Corporations, Creating a Regenerative Economy
Is possible to create a successful business that sustains our social, environmental and economic well-being? As our Teton regional economy diversifies, how can entrepreneurs integrate these values into their businesses? Join Jonathan Schechter and Fred Keller at our first Chance Meetings of 2018 for a thought-provoking discussion on being a part of the regenerative economy.
Fred Keller founded Cascade Engineering in 1973 with the belief business can be financially profitable and socially and environmentally responsible. Driven by Fred’s belief, a small team of six employees has grown to be a company of 1,600 people serving a worldwide customer base. See Fred discuss the concept of the Triple Bottom line- people, planet, profit- here. (http://www.cascadeng.com/what-we-believe). As one of the largest certified B Corps in the world, Cascade Engineering is widely recognized for business practices that emphasize how business can build financial, social, and environmental capital.
