Jay Friedlander: Sharpe-McNally Chair of Green and Socially Responsible Business at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Jay Friedlander is the Sharpe-McNally Chair of Green and Socially Responsible Business at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine and founder of its vanguard sustainable business program. The College has been repeatedly cited as a leader in sustainability and Jay's work has been covered in The New York Times, Fast Company, Princeton Review, CNN, Chronicle of Higher Education, Entrepreneur, Triple Pundit, Fortune, Money and dozens of other media outlets.

With experiences as an impact entrepreneur, academic and strategy consultant to Fortune 100 companies, Jay has merged sustainability and business strategy with the Abundance Cycle™. The actionable model provides businesses with new perspectives as well as a clear pathway forward. The Abundance Cycle™ builds on competitive strengths and weaves in the latest tactics enterprises are using across the globe to maximize abundance for shareholders, the planet and society.

Jay also serves on the entrepreneurship faculty of Babson College where he is Senior Fellow in Social Innovation. Jay is a frequent speaker on sustainable innovation and enterprise. He has given talks to business and academic groups in the United States, as well as Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and the European Union.

Jay holds a BA from Colgate University and an MBA from Babson College, where he graduated as Valedictorian. When not ensconced in the Abundance Cycle™, Jay enjoys cooking, hiking in Acadia National Park and traveling with his wife Ursula and son Max.

What do you do best?

Unifying strategy and sustainability to build an abundant world with prosperity for society, the planet and the economy. I also know my way around the kitchen; you can’t change the world on an empty stomach.

What makes you the best?

I believe perspective is the arbiter of opportunity in enterprise and fulfillment in life. I maximize the potential for discoveries and alternative pathways by searching for fresh viewpoints and connecting seemingly dissonant ideas.

How will you stay the best?

Balancing the values and actions of a backpacker, an entrepreneur, a chef and a teacher.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To enjoy exploration regardless of whether that takes place traveling, at work or with family and friends.

Business: To help usher in a new economic age where regenerative enterprises that build social, economic and environmental value outperform conventional companies.

Favorite Places:

Iceland, the Sahara and the wilderness

Favorite Products:
