HAPPY PLANET

About

Can innovation, entrepreneurship and investment make the planet happier and healthier? Abigail Carroll thinks so. Known as Maine's Oyster Lady, Abigail sold her aquaculture and tourism business NONESUCH MAINE in 2021 and has since been advising and investing in high-growth start-ups in the US and Europe that seek to help solve some of the world's most pressing problems, all while turning a profit. Through conversations with founders, investors, and thought leaders, Abigail shares this thought-provoking and hope-promoting world with her audience. And always with a little humour.
