Fill out our Form


Entrepreneurs for Sustainability, or EN4S ("Enforce") is a fully volunteer-led BCSEA initiative dedicated to entrepreneurship. Our mission is two-fold: to encourage the formation and success of companies dedicated to tackling sustainable energy issues and filling gaps in this section of the business landscape, and to create networking and career-building opportunities for sustainability-minded professionals and entrepreneurs.

Current initiative

In 2020 we are launching the Sustainable Energy Startup Help Desk. We will be looking to hear from sustainability startups what aspects of their business they need help with, but do not have the connections or resources to obtain such help. We will then aim to provide targeted assistance using BCSEA resources and connections. This could take a variety of forms, from idea feedback to industry insights to mentoring for various aspects of running a startup to help with grant applications and more.

Reach out to us and let us know where you struggle, we may be able to help!

Learn about our prior years' initiatives

In 2019 we created the EN4S brand and expanded the format to a month-long series of events intended to give participants the time to grow, find good teammates, and learn new skills before developing their ideas into business pitches, polished with help from resourceful mentors and evaluated by experienced judges.

2019 Event

In 2018 we organized a two-day hackathon titled "HallowHacks" to try and answer the question "How to use technology for creating awareness and for financing sustainable energy initiatives?"
