TOOLS FOR ENTREPRENEURS

SEED Tools for Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs

Based on the experience of working with social and environmental enterprises, SEED - CLIMBIZ's knowledge and strategy partner - has developed specific tools. One of these allows an initiative to assess what is needed to make its social and environmental business successful; another covers effective building and maintenance of partnerships. A wiki is designed for social and environmental entrepreneurs to share their knowledge and experience with others. All tools can be accessed via the links below:
