Plant-Based Entrepreneurs


The Plant-Based Entrepreneurs Network (PBEN), a service of the Plant-Based Society, is focused on helping plant-based/vegan entrepreneurs to successfully grow their businesses and promote the plant-based lifestyle.  This includes health and wellness coaches, dietitians, doctors, retailers, restaurants, food innovators and more.  Our belief is that together we can help accelerate the plant-based movement to help people improve their health, save billions of animals each year, and protect our planet and the lives of future generations.  We invite you to join us!
