Mike Flynn

Co-founder and COO

As co-founder and COO of Opportunity Green, Mike Flynn is the quintessential upcoming, young green entrepreneur who has removed "mutually exclusive" from the outdated attitude in business toward social responsibility and profitability. In 2007 at UCLA, Opportunity Green put together a sold-out green business conference for 500+ attendees that featured keynotes like Kevin Wall from Live Earth; inspiring, educating, and connecting a business community towards an environmentally sustainable mindset.

 

After the success of Opportunity Green 2007, Mike and four friends took a hiatus from corporate life to create Feral Green (www.feralgreen.com) where they embarked on a humanitarian and ecological adventure and surf trip from Newport Beach, CA to the Southern tip of South America in a vegetable oil burning 4x4 truck. The Feral Green mission was to educate and promote alternative fuels and ecological conservation in classrooms and communities throughout Latin America.

 

An avid surfer and snowboarder, Mike holds a BS, Cum Laude in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA. 2009 holds in store for Mike not only Opportunity Green conferences slated for New York and Los Angeles, but he will be headed the exclusive TED conference, where he will be convening with the some of the most talented and influential leaders in business and technology to collaborate and advance environmental sustainability.
