About our Speaker:
Sean Carpenter, the Climate Economy Advisor at City of Fort Collins, grew up emptying coins from parking meters and cleaning the bathrooms at his dad’s real estate and farmer’s market businesses in Michigan, which began an enduring passion for entrepreneurship. A life-changing experience as a summer exchange student in Mexico during college put Sean on an international path, which was followed with a stint in the Peace Corps. Since that time, Sean has been living working around the world, including in Seoul, Guadalajara, Geneva and Malawi, among other locations. Sean got involved with microfinance and lending for disadvantaged entrepreneurs in California after receiving his MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in 2000. On the finance side, he’s spent the past 16 years setting up dedicated banks for women entrepreneurs (India), lending cooperatives for farmers (Nicaragua), and women’s savings and lending programs around the world (Malawi, Zambia, Ethiopia, Botswana, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Guatemala). In September, he began working for the City of Fort Collins in the newly created role as Climate Economy Advisor for the City organization
