Founded in 1999, the Institute for Environmental Entrepreneurship (IEE) advances environmental and social sustainability for our planet, all people and our collective prosperity, now and into the future.


We do this by facilitating and conducting research, analysis and education, as well as by convening experts and activists.


At IEE, we support entrepreneurship as a mindset that recognizes challenges and rises up to meet them. Whether we are working with business entrepreneurs launching new ventures or social entrepreneurs tackling tough problems, we support the work of those who believe that accepting the status quo is not an option.
