Green Business Base Camp now accepting applications

A new arrival in Los Angeles to help entrepreneurs find those elusive keys to cleantech start-up success – the Green Business BASE CAMP.  GBBC offers practical workshops in a small group environment.  The workshops will present current trends and tools from small business experts and successful entrepreneurs. 

The first event for GBBC will be a CleanWeb Hackathon with partners CALinnovates and New Economy Campaigns.   CleanWeb is an approach entrepreneurs can apply to meet global resource constraints through the application of information technology.  The goal of the movement is to build scalable and disruptive solutions to solve issues related to climate, energy, water, food, transportation, and land use.

According to their website, GBBC is the definitive experiential education program combining elements of roll-up-your-sleeves work, retreat and a good dose of fun, all in a setting surrounded by nature. I’ve met enough successful entrepreneurs to know it’s possible to bring great ideas to market. With the right guidance and knowledge, many of you can get there, too. Helping you bring your green business idea to market means we all win.

The Los Angeles workshop coincident with the CleanWeb Hackathon takes place May 31-June 3, 2012 at The Colburn School.  Only 100 applicants will be accepted to this intensive, four-day retreat.  Apply here for consideration before April 22.
