Are you working toward a regenerative approach to business? Join with us in the Summit as a leader in its story.


Founding Champions: Participants who joined in the initial Summit and return annually, actively participate in plenary and stream fishbowls, and help advance the conversation by inviting other thinking partners to join us. We consider you the closest to the community and the highest level of stewardship for a regenerative way of doing business.
Storytelling Champions: Regenerative Business Prize nominators and nominees. You create opportunities to learn from the experience of others through the stories you share with us. The Regenerative Business Prize honors the intentions, endeavors, and results of businesses and their ripple effects into industries, social systems, cultural paradigms, and ways of governing. We select “honorees,” not “winners,” so we can tell the stories of those that are clearly on the path towards a regenerative paradigm. This Prize honors the continual journey along this path, and holds each honoree accountable to continued learning and growth.

Underwriting Champions:
underwriters of the Summit, including financial. You participate in the Regenerative Business Summit and contribute financially to ensure we co-evolve the work of Regeneration. We partner with you because your regenerative path in business can enrich our conversations and inspire our community members to advance their own work. No one can buy their way into the community; you underwrite the Summit because you are committed to growing your business, regeneratively and to helping others do the same. Your audience is at the Summit— where your business can engage them in a meaningful and direct way. Spaces are limited and subject to conversations. Please review the levels and benefits below, and email Jessica Green with any questions. Or talk to Carol if you have ideas you do not see here.

Carol Sanford uniquely understands how to develop more conscious, creative, innovative, and intentional human beings. Her work contributed to exponentially increasing the value of my company and perhaps most important, helped us discover that work can be deeply fulfilling in ways that feed your soul.

Jeffrey Hollender, Founder & CEO, Founder, Founding CEO Seventh Generation

Carol advocates for a vision of firms as cradles of human development, supporting their employees through journeys of discovery that focus on the lived experience of the customer. Her work points the way to building authentically purpose driven firms that will drive the kind of disruption that my own research suggests is likely to be catalysts in reimagining capitalism and to a way of being in the world that is simultaneously deeply pragmatic and an expression of transformative hope.

Rebecca M. Henderson, John and Natty McArthur University Professor, Harvard Business School

Carol has already influenced my own thinking and that of Kauffman leaders and we are partnering with her for more evolution in entrepreneurship and education to great ends. It’s just what the world needs to transform our fractured and fragmented workplace culture into a healthy, regenerative whole system. You will see why I so strongly recommend this work.

Mark Beam, Maverick in Residence Kauffman Foundation

Leading successful business transformation in a complex and challenging environment requires clarity, alignment, will and a sense of purpose at all levels across the organization. The principles and ideas presented for The Regenerative Business deliver these effects systemically an in a way that brings deeper satisfaction and meaning to work. Using the frameworks to build a developmental view is producing significant cultural shifts that are moving our business forward. Associates are energized to grow their impact, and customers are feeling the difference.

Lara Lee, President, Orchard Supply Hardware

Carol Sanford has fundamentally challenged and transformed the way we think about entrepreneurship, innovation, and developing our leaders. Since she began teaching at the school, the impact of Carol’s regenerative frameworks and concepts has reached beyond the classroom. She has supported the students, faculty, and leadership to explore how the curriculum, learning community, and organization can form a seamless whole in pursuit of driving transformative change. The Regenerative Business is essential for any leader looking to design and lead a thriving 21st century organization.

Christer Windeløv-Lidzélius, Principal, Kaospilot, Denmark, Business & Design in leadership and entrepreneurship

Prepare to abandon all current thinking about what makes organizations great. Original, powerful, and persuasive, The Regenerative Business exposes the limited worldviews and minimal expectations that drive most organizations. In their place, it offers practical and insightful frameworks for creating “regenerative” processes, illustrated with successful and profitable real-world applications of these ideas. Promoting ways of seeing and being in the world that couldn't be more timely or essential, The Regenerative Business details models that engage the whole person in the larger systems in which they operate.

Jessica Lipnack and David McConville, Co-chairs, Board of Directors, Buckminster Fuller Institute
