Breakfast talk with Andrew Heintzman at the Sustainability Network

Thursday, July 8, 2010 - 12:00 to 13:00

In "The New Entrepreneurs," author and venture capitalist Andrew Heintzman introduces us to a burgeoning class of entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of the green-tech economy. From forestry to water to agriculture and oil, he maps out the leading enterprises that are developing cutting-edge, high-profit, clean-tech products and systems for export to a vast and rapidly expanding global market. "The New Entrepreneurs" offers a fresh and visionary approach to redesigning our current economic system, one that uses the powerful forces within capitalism to act as a catalyst for change -- and profit.

Andrew Heintzman is a co-founder of Investeco. Andrew is also the Chair of the Premier's Climate Change Advisory Panel. He sits on a number of corporate boards including Lotek Wireless, Triton Logging and Horizon Distributors. In addition, he is on the board of directors of the Tides Canada Foundation, the Steering Committee of Sustainable Prosperity and was the Chair of the Sustainability Network. Andrew is coeditor of a number of books about sustainability. Andrew will be interviewed by Alternatives' Executive Editor Nicola Ross. Nicola is an award winning writer and author.

Admission is $20.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
