We believe the next generation can change the world.
That’s why we created The Greenhouse Initiative — to support and inspire our future social entrepreneurs. We give four lucky students or student groups a $4,000 grant to fund their triple bottom line projects or businesses and teach them the ins and outs of sustainable business to help bring them to life.
The Triple-bottom line business model measures a business or project's performance from an economic, social and environmental stand-point.

Sambazon is collaborating with The Ecology Center to provide expertise and mentorship to grant winners. The
Ecology Center is a non-profit organization based in Southern California that models creative solutions for thriving on
planet Earth. Their partnership over the past two years has made The Greenhouse Initiative possible.
"Winning the grant was a big step to progress our biogas food truck project further. Not only because we received the funding to help solve some significant operational issues, but also because we learned a lot through working with Sambazon, The Ecology Center and other winning teams. During the monthly calls, we were always inspired by them and started re-thinking how we need to move the project forward."

“Winning The Greenhouse Initiative was the vehicle for us to get our foot in the door into corporate sustainability. A simple “Thank You” to Sambazon and The Ecology Center doesn’t do justice for how grateful we are.”
- SoulMuch team
"The Greenhouse Initiative grant provided an exciting opportunity to collaborate with a group of students passionate about disrupting equilibriums on our campus concerning sustainability. We were inspired by the work other young people are doing on their respective campuses and regained a sense of purpose to the work we are doing.”
