Rub Elbows at Opportunity Green!

Live near L.A.? Head over to UCLA this weekend (November 8-9, 2008) to get down to business—the green way—at Opportunity Green, a sustainable business conference that we’ve always considered sexy.

Whether you’re an established green company founder hoping to connect with eco-vendors, potential customers or fresh, young talent, or, you’re a new eco-entrepreneur looking for funding or investment opportunities—you’re likely to find something or someone at the conference to help you on your way to a meaner, greener business.

You’ll also walk away quite inspired. The conference has a reputation for lining up some great, green heavyweight speakers. (Check out the photos from last year after the jump!) This year’s line-up includes super-connected green gurus from: Patagonia, Nike Considered Design, Whole Foods, Wal-Mart and green company founders like Josh Dorfman from Vivavi, Joshua Onysko from Pangea Organics, Tom Szaky from Terracyle and many others.

This weekend's conference even has Planet Green talent on the scene—hosts Annabelle Gurwitch of Wa$ted and Boise Thomas of Alter Eco!

Once you register, you'll have the chance to rub elbows with some of the prime eco-movers and shakers in the green business industry.


Eco-preneurs and greenies seeking green jobs work the crowd.
