6pm - 8:30pm at Venture Greenhouse
In this presentation, Kevin intends to share examples of how permaculture ethics and principles can be applied to innovate how we produce and exchange goods and services with each other. Kevin will identify the ethics and principles by name, show image examples of how these appear in an urban permaculture setting and then share how these principles can be and are being applied to business.
No prior familiarity with permaculture design is necessary and questions and discussion will be encouraged with the intent to arrive at inspirational ideas for business innovation, empowering actions we can take home with us and a broader sense for how permaculture can be applied in the world. This is for small business leaders, individual interested in starting their own innovative venture, individuals searching for right-livelihood opportunities and anyone interested in permaculture and the next economy.
Kevin Bayuk works at the intersection of ecology and economy where permaculture design meets cooperative organizations intent on meeting human needs while enhancing the conditions conducive to all life. He is a partner with LIFT (http://www.lifteconomy.com) where he provides strategy and guidance for emergent next economy companies helping them access growth capital and sustainable growth plans. He also frequently teaches classes, workshops, does public speaking, facilitates meetings, plans events and provides one on one mentoring as a founding partner of the Urban Permaculture Institute San Francisco (http://www.upisf.com) .
Kevin is as fluent with information technology as with perennial polyculture agriforestry. Writing, speaking, researching and mentoring are his strongest skills. He's help raise millions of dollars of venture capital for companies he's co-founded and he raises ducks in his small urban garden in San Francisco.
