At the Epicenter is on a mission to educate, inspire and mobilize entrepreneurs and business leaders by cultivating action-orientated community among leaders in natural, organic and sustainable business. By working with influential underwriters that are focusing resources on impacts for the benefit of our Planet, At the Epicenter is poised to convene gatherings of influencers to address global challenges. Our most recent effort in community building emphasizes carbon sequestration, specifically through regenerative agriculture, and launched itself in the shape of the Regenerative Earth Summit: Food + Climate + Culture. This gathering of minds and hearts introduced a new caliber of professionalism and networking for the greatest good of people, and deep restoration of planet, while embracing the necessity for success in the business place.

The Regenerative Earth Summit: Food + Climate + Culture sold out to international participants and convened in Boulder, CO on November 6-7 and was sponsored by Whole Foods Market, Patagonia, Epic, EcoSphere+, New Resource Bank, Dr. Bronner’s, MegaFood, Regeneration International, Organic India, Presence Marketing/Dynamic Presence, Vital Farms, Gaia Herbs, Foodstirs and in part by our 1% for the Planet partners 1908 Brands plus many more. Over the course of two days, six thought provoking panels shared expertise, wisdom and insight. All attendees were offered the opportunity to engage in panel conversations directly, and a round table seating arrangement created a uniquely open format offering much opportunity for discussion and relationship building.

Principle-based business leadership necessitates individual growth within a business environment that is stakeholder-centric. At the Epicenter believes business practice must include restoration of our planets ecology and integrate community and environmental stewardship as outcomes for all business while creating shared prosperity.  At the Epicenter is dedicated to serving as a resource, networking link, educational tool and inspiration for established business leaders and emerging entrepreneurs wishing to engage more holistically in their life’s work. We inspire the dedication of efforts and resources to ethics and missions that manifest humanitarian good, soil regeneration, revived indigenous wisdom and conventional success able to address the critical issues of our time with dignity and grace. The Regenerative Earth Summit embraced all of these goals and celebrates the emerging community.

Striving to address the internal and external simultaneously, melding personal, professional and mindfulness, At the Epicenter looks to 2018 to cultivate systemic transformation by activating values that mirror inner and outer world growth. We are deeply honored by those that supported, participated, witnessed and were ultimately catalysts in the forward momentum generated by the Regenerative Earth Summit.
