666: Joshua Prieto on Empowering Regenerative Businesses.
Highlighting entrepreneurs with strong moral standings and an understanding of regenerative practices.
In This Podcast:
When we think of permaculture, we immediately think of farms, gardens and homesteads, but Joshua Prieto broadens our perspective. These principles are so universal, they can (and should!) be applied to more than just our gardens. Joshua explains his unique programs that teach entrepreneurs how to grow regenerative businesses from the ground up, rather than creating businesses that simply apply regenerative practices.
Joshua Prieto is the Co-Founder and Director of the Seeds of Tao learning platform for regenerative entrepreneurs. He has over 10 years of experience creating, building, and operating startup solutions alongside entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes. That experience has shown him that entrepreneurs have the biggest role to play in the Anthropocene as we either create the solutions for, or become the root problem of, our people, planet, and future. Josh now co-creates educational programs that disrupt the current way our entrepreneurs learn. His holistically designed educational programs empower entrepreneurs to stop chasing “silver-bullet” solutions and start designing solutions that use regenerative systems.
