The Stonyfield Entrepreneurship Institute was conceived by Gary Hirshberg in 1998 based on his experience growing Stonyfield Farm, Inc. from its humble start as a seven-cow operation in 1983 to its current $370 MM annual sales level. In 2002, Gary joined with Michael Swack, and, in 2008, it became a partnership with UNH’s Carsey Institute and the Whittemore School of Business and Economics. By offering a highly interactive, intimate venue for networking, storytelling, and problem solving, the institute has offered a safe, yet stimulating environment for hundreds of for-profit and not-for-profit entrepreneurs to learn about financing, marketing, finding personal balance, managing change, and the many other areas that are fundamental to growing an enterprise. The "case" method approach ensures a practical and grounded “real world” experience. Participants are assured of taking home a wealth of pragmatic and useful ideas and strategies that can be immediately put to work in a growing enterprise.
