You have an idea, something that’s going to change the world for the better. You might be turning waste products into handbags or reviving traditional knowledge for use in modern handicraft production.

You do some informal market research, with friends and then maybe friends of friends. Other people think it’s a good idea too.

If you’ve never owned your own business it is hard to explain how difficult that next step is – deciding to do it and then doing it. You don’t quite realise how much running a successful business is not just about having a good idea and a product that people like and want to buy.

Having been on this journey ourselves, we were delighted to work on this ‘Guide to Green Entrepreneurship’ and the associated training and mentoring programme.

The guide collates various simple resources that emerging businesses need on product development, business planning, branding and marketing and the dreaded compliance regimes. We hope that it is useful for all the amazingly passionate greenpreneurs in the region and came away from every event and training session exceedingly hopeful for the future.

The initiative was part of the Regional Pacific NDC Hub and facilitated by the Global Green Growth Institute as a key implementation partner of the Hub.
