The Environmental Entrepreneurship Initiative (EEI) is a partnership between the Center for the Environment and the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship at Purdue's Discovery Park.

This initiative is designed to encourage undergraduate and graduate student teams to learn about environmental entrepreneurship by developing new ideas into services or products that benefit the environment and society.

A total of $10,000 will be awarded to the best environmental service and product ideas. 

An informational call out will be held Oct. 16 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 205, ABE.
