Are you interested in entrepreneurship but confused about where to begin?

We are kicking off the Sustainability After School series (where students and alumni learn from career experts and industry leaders), with a talk from one of our very own graduates and accomplished entrepreneur, John Martinson. He will address what you can do with a sustainability career and the tools you need in order to get there from his very own success as an entrepreneur.

John is a 2016 graduate of the Executive Masters of Sustainability Leadership program. He is the Co-Founder of China Mist Iced Tea Company and is currently a Managing Partner of Be the Tea, LLC, an innovative 21st Century state-of-the-art sustainable enterprise. John has earned various honors and awards for his community involvement. He also sponsors the Martinson Sustainability Solutions Research Grant, awarded to a student in the School of Sustainability each year. Read more about his sustainability story.

The presentation may be viewed online here.
