Gunter Pauli


Gunter Pauli is a Belgian entrepreneur, economist, author.

Pauli pioneers’ innovations and creates new (disruptive) business models. Gunter accompanied over 200 projects over the past quarter of a century, translating ideas with solid science into a vision implemented through entrepreneurship.

These initiatives have evolved in three unicorns and dozens of demonstrations on how to transform society. Gunter adheres to a philosophy summarized in his book “The Blue Economy” (2010) translated in nearly 50 languages. (https://www.gunterpauli.com/the-blue-economy.html)

He proposes to avoid dividing opinions centered around “for or against”. Rather he continuously focuses on finding better solutions, much better indeed! He embraces radical change, shifting from the obsession to ever higher levels of efficiency, globalization and ever lower prices, to resilience and the capacity to better respond to the basic needs of all, by generating value with what is locally available.

He dedicates half of his time to inspire children with fables that empowers them to create a “Super World” their parents could never have imagined. His latest book “The Economy of Happiness” is based on the successful implementation of game changing businesses, and outlines underlying principles that establish the successful pursuit of health and happiness.
