Welcome to the Institute of Ecolonomics, where we're all about combining the power of economics with the magic of ecology. You might think that sounds like the beginning of a cheesy joke, but we're actually quite serious about our mission to help businesses thrive while also protecting the planet. We're not just tree-huggers, we're savvy businesspeople who know that going green can actually mean making more green. Our team of ecolonomic experts are here to guide you through the maze of sustainability, so you can emerge on the other side with a profitable, responsible, and kick-ass business. So come on in, put your green thinking cap on, and get ready to be ecolonomically transformed!


We Are Artistic, Resilient and Earth Friendly 

The Institute of Ecolonomics (IOE) is a non-profit 501c3 entity providing business development services to entrepreneurs with ideas, technologies, and inventions that when implemented will make the planet better while generating a sustainable profit.

Our mission is to demonstrate that creating a symbiotic relationship between a strong economy and a healthy ecology is the only formula for a sustainable future.

Our newest educational program is called the Ecolonomic Action Team (EAT). Like minded entrepreneurs have come together to share their knowledge and experience with each other on how to make the planet a better place. IOE partners show, teach, mentor and network with all those wishing to make a living while making the planet a better place.

Our team is coaching, mentoring, and networking almost every day of the week. Thousands of people are signed up and using our resources to start entrepreneurial projects around the world. 

Mountain Sky Ranch, in Berthoud CO, is our headquarters where we live, teach and unite like-minded individuals to make the world a better place. Learn more about how Mountain Sky Ranch keeps sustainability in business here.  

Our founder Dennis Weaver used to say in his cowboy sort of way – “We’ve spent billions of dollars and thousands of years messin’ the planet up, now we need to show people how to make it better and make a little money too.”

We support people who support the planet. You can too.

Values of the Institute of Ecolonomics (IOE)

Make a Little 

We believe in the power of ecolonomics to make the world a better place, one profitable business at a time. Because let's face it, saving the planet is great, but making money while doing it is even better.

Walk the Walk

At the Institute of Ecolonomics, we don't just talk the talk, we walk the eco-friendly walk. And we do it all while wearing fashionable and sustainable shoes.


Turn Green into Gold

We're not just a bunch of tree-huggers here at the Institute of Ecolonomics, we're smart and savvy businesspeople who know how to turn green into gold. And yes, we're talking about both money and the environment.


Our Story

Once upon a time, in a world not so eco-friendly, a group of sustainability superheroes got together to save the planet and make some cash. They had a vision of a world where businesses could thrive and grow without sacrificing the environment, and they knew just how to make it happen.

They combined the power of economics with the magic of ecology to create a new, super-powered approach to sustainability: ecolonomics. And so, the Institute of Ecolonomics was born! With a team of passionate experts and a mission to save the world, one profitable business at a time, they set out to conquer the sustainability space with their wit, charm, and kick-ass sustainable shoes. And the rest, as they say, is history - or at least, it will be, once they've saved the planet.

Why We Do It

At the Institute of Ecolonomics, we do what we do for a few reasons. First and foremost, we want to make the world a better place, because let's face it, it could use some improvement. Second, we like to think of ourselves as sustainability superheroes, with the power to save the planet while also making some sweet, sweet cash. And third, we're just really passionate about ecolonomics, which is kind of like the Avengers of business: it combines the powers of economics and ecology to create a super-powered approach to sustainability. Plus, it's a great excuse to wear green capes and masks to work.
