Opportunity Green Rolls Out the Green Carpet for the New York City Debut

Posted on 22. Jul, 2009 by in Events

Who would be bold enough to take over one city block of Manhattan on Bastille Day? Opportunity Green and MINI E, of course. Last week the Opportunity Green team went bi-coastal and headed to New York to host over 300 guests for a night of metropolitan mingling. As guests strolled into the three-story Environment showroom, they were able to catch a glimpse of ten electric MINI E vehicles, proudly driven by a diverse set of MINI E Pioneers.

Notable guests in attendance included Graham Hill, Treehugger Interactive Founder & CEO; Julie Gilhart, Fashion Director & SVP at Barneys; Rohit Aggarwala, Director of New York City Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning nd Sustainability; and Helen Walters, Innovation Editor at Businessweek.  Movers and shakers in the clean tech space included Micah Kotch, Operations Director of NYC Accelerator for a Clean & Renewable Economy and Lex Heslin, MINI E Pioneer & CEO of Beautiful Earth Group.

Party attendees interacted with other executives, artists, designers, and academics from around the Tri-State Region.  In between conversations, many guests indulged in organic delights from Sage Events and fruit cocktails splashed with natural mixers and organic vodka.  In true Opportunity Green fashion, a NYC Photobooth was set up on the second floor of Environment to capture guests up close and personal.  As the night started to wind down and the NYC humidity went up, guests left with new connections and a fresh taste of California cool.
