What is U360?

U360 creates full-circle learning between seasoned business leaders and the next generation of “sustainable entrepreneurs.” Manomet is at the center of this circle; facilitating the conversation, and providing sustainability tools to the people who can make change happen today and tomorrow.

U360 helps students understand the practical challenges of applying general sustainability principles to a specific situation. Students also develop essential workplace and career skills, gain real-world experience, and begin building their network of professional contacts.

Why should you attend?

If you’re a business owner, this event is a chance to network with Boston-area business leaders before and after the student presentations. During the presentations, students will be sharing a wide variety of practices that will be applicable to any business. Plus, one of these entrepreneurial students might just be your next employee or colleague!
