Alex and Ana Bogusky value content. Content that inspires, educates and motivates green businesses, healthy lifestyles entrepreneurs, consumer advocacy groups, and engaged citizens. Content—including blogs, videos, interviews, books, and now live events—advancing health and sustainability, product innovation, consumer rights, and jobs in America.
As such, the Boguskys’ FearLess Revolution, a project dedicated to serving up ideas, case studies and information that help drive the new economy, and “At the Epicenter”—a popular speaker and networking series for green entrepreneurs produced by Boulder-based Best Organics and Compass Natural—have both joined forces with the Living GREEN Foundation, a Boulder-based 501c3 organization, to launch a collaborative nonprofit project under the FearLess Revolution umbrella to provide an expanded library of resources and content for change makers in health and sustainability.
“We’re seeing a dramatic shift in the way business is done toward more transparency, more collaboration, more democracy, and ultimately more value,” said Alex Bogusky, co-founder with his wife Ana of FearLess Revolution, and award-winning co-founder of renowned advertising agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky. “We’re excited to work with At the Epicenter co-founders Seleyn DeYarus and Steven Hoffman in expanding our library, resource and event offerings, and in serving shared objectives of building a healthier, happier world.”
