O'Neill participates in 2012 ECOPRENEUR Green Entrepreneurship program, June, 2012
O'Neill was the only judge from the United States - out of 17 judges and 26 teams from 23 countries - to participate in ECOPRENEUR 2012, an international business plan competition for young entrepreneurs. The competition was held June 18 through June 23 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. "The idea is that entrepreneurs and ecopreneurs are similar because they are both idea-driven, innovative, adaptable and creative," said O'Neill. "The demand for "green" products combined with government incentives has led to ecopreneurs starting new companies to push forward environmental progress." The competition was designed to give young entrepreneurs the opportunity to address clean technology, green management, health-friendly and sustainable business ideas, and social causes through new ventures.
