Consultants

Corona Enterprises has no employees. We prefer for others to work with us not for us. This also allows us to stay lean and build the team that is right for the project. Below are some of the people we go to first when the need arises.

We think it's a pretty great group.

  Cody Harrison - Regenerative System Design, Corona Founder   Cody studied Environmental Science and Policy at Duke University and graduated in 2012. Since then he has been working toward and beyond Sustainability (Resilience & Regeneration) in sectors such as wastewater, regenerative agriculture, and green building, where he works to leverage technology as a tool for social good. His goal is to help end the anthropogenic mass extinction event currently taking place and bring humanity back in line with  planetary and social boundaries.
