    "Clean" Market Opportunities: Can Entrepreneurs Help Detox our Lives? Full Details [X]
    5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    Babson Campus - Knight Auditorium

    Scientific evidence shows that in our everyday lives, starting in the womb, we're exposed to toxic chemicals that have been linked to disease. Surprisingly, there are no requirements in the U.S. for health and safety testing of chemicals before they're put into consumer products. Now many consumers are up in arms, big retailers are beginning to respond, and some states are taking policy action -- but meaningful change has been slow going. Given the burgeoning market demand for "cleaner" products and the public health risk of continuing the toxic status quo, what are the opportunities for entrepreneurs to do well while doing good in this space? How can companies identify which chemicals are safe and which are toxic? How can consumers safeguard the health of their families?

    In this panel discussion, we'll learn the latest in the science of environmental health, learn about successful ventures, and hear promising directions for the development of consumer products and new technologies for detoxing our lives. Anyone interested in health, consumer products, clean technology, or the environment are encouraged to attend. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Following the panel, there will be a light reception and time to connect with the panelists.
