Join us at Presidio Graduate School's Capstone Showcase and Sustainable Product Innovation Fair on Saturday, December 16th. We welcome our PGS community and guests to attend this special event. Seating is limited and registration via Eventbrite is strongly encouraged.

6:00 - 7:00 PM Sustainable Product Innovation Fair

Come view original product innovations and prototypes that address a range of environmental and social challenges, while enjoying delicious sustainably-sourced food and a cash bar. Student teams from the Fall 2017 Sustainable Products & Services course will be presenting their project designs focused on clothing diversion from landfills, relationships with people experiencing homelessness, closed-loop waste management on farms, and other public and private sustainability purposes.

7:30 - 9:00 PM Capstone Showcase Presentations

The Showcase will begin with a talk from PGS SF alumna "boomerang" speaker, Sandra Kwak, C7. Sandra is the Founder and CEO of 10Power, a social venture that works with under-served communities globally to build capacity for renewable energy, clean water, gender empowerment, and ecosystem restoration. Graduating students will then present their new ventures and policy plans, developed as part of Presidio Graduate School's Integrative MBA and MPA Capstone courses. This semester's Capstone Showcase will feature projects on discarded solar panel repurposing, employee ownership crowdfunding, and intentional community creation, among other things. These ready-to-fund, ready-to-implement plans put sustainable management ideas into practice, with transformational business and policy models designed for launch and scale.
