Program for Environmental and Civic Engagement and Nelson Center to offer venture grants

The Program for Environmental and Civic Engagement (PECE), a new initiative of the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES), is excited to announce a new collaboration with the Jonathan M. Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship. Together, we are offering early stage venture grants for undergraduate and graduate students interested in developing entrepreneurial solutions to environmental problems.

While we encourage innovative solutions to any and all problems at the nexus of environment and society, we are particularly interested in solutions-based enterprises that tackle problems of adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, agricultural solutions to feeding a growing population more sustainably, and coastal resource management. We are looking for individuals or teams that possess an understanding of these core problems and we hope to stimulate solutions-based ventures that promote a healthier, more sustainable future society.
