About the event:
Post Growth Entrepreneurship (PGE), as defined by the Post Growth Entrepreneurship Workshop, reframes business as a form of activism, art, spirituality, and creative expression. This model embraces flat growth curves and rejects the traditional need for investors, scaling, and exits, questioning conventional entrepreneurial wisdom and re-envisioning business as a vehicle for pure positive impact.
