Eben just returned from speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting in New York City. Invited as a keynote speaker for a topic dinner, Eben represented the United Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge (PLGC) and the commitment to scale up their green business competition, which Eben and Gavin won in 2008. By increasing the amount of entries, the quality and countries of origin, United Postcode Lotteries aim to speed up the development of new, innovative green businesses around the globe to tackle the challenges of climate change. Ecovative is proud to support the Green Challenge. In his remarks, Clinton also expressed support for PLGC.
