VentureClass “Sustainable Entrepreneurship” @ Heymanszaal, Academy Building
May 18 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

With pleasure we announce the next VentureClass of 2017 on Thursday evening 18 May. For this VentureClass we have invited the speaker Edward Doorten, founder of Green Planet.

Edward Doorten and Green Planet

In 2013 Edward Doorten opened Green Planet; petrol station and centre of sustainable mobility. Green Planet is the first multi fuel petrol station, aimed at sustainability. Alongside fossil fuels that petrol station also has several sustainable fuel types available. Education and awareness about sustainability is an important part of Green Planet’s philosophy, therefore Green Planet also provides education on the conversion of cars, so that they can run (partly) on sustainable fuel, and executes this conversion as well.

During this VentureClass on Sustainable Entrepreneurship, Edward will talk about ‘green entrepreneurship’ and discuss sustainable and innovative entrepreneurship. The VentureClass will conclude with a Q&A session where Edward is available to answer your questions.
