Eco-Entrepreneurs Inspire at Opportunity Green

The Opportunity Green conference’s start-up competition gave center stage to new companies making headway in a variety of different environmental causes. From transforming heat emissions into electricity, to using a mobile game to encourage people to adopt a greener lifestyle, to solving homelessness with cardboard and optimizing printing, these eco-entrepreneurs have creative solutions that are both practical and revolutionary—and deserving of attention and support.

  • Cardborigami: tackles homelessness with foldable shelters
  • Alphabet Energy: technology that transforms excess heat into electricity
  • Practically Green: game that makes green lifestyle changes fun for players
