ICSE 2019

Sustainable Entrepreneurship: Innovating a Carbon-Free Economy in a Thriving Planet

August 28-30, 2019
Montreal, Canada

The inaugural launch of International Conference for Sustainable Entrepreneurship starts a movement to build sustainability into the DNA of every entrepreneurial initiative. Our central theme of Sustainable Entrepreneurship is no longer about fostering a branch of entrepreneurship such as Greentech; instead, it is about entrepreneurship done right: economically; socially, and environmentally right! It’s about every entrepreneur becoming a sustainable entrepreneur, and rising up collectively to the defining challenges of our time such as the climate crisis, widescale poverty and rampant diseases. In short, it is about innovating a carbon-free economy within a socially just society in a flourishing planet.

ICSE 2019 will bring together academics, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, investors, businesses and all concerned stakeholders from around the world to deliver and share the latest research, best business practices, cutting-edge tools and frameworks, and finally the insightful policies that will equip the innovators and entrepreneurs of the present and the future to rise up to the greatest challenge of our time; the Sustainability Challenge. In addition to the traditional parallel sessions, ICSE 2019 will consist of keynote lectures, panel discussions, and workshops from internationally-renowned experts in their respective fields.
