A new way to print…or not.

At the 5th Opportunity Green conference held in Los Angeles November 10-11, new companies presented products and services in one-minute pitches for a chance to win Green Start-Up of the Year.

In a tight race with Kiverdi carbon recyclers, PrintEco Office pulled out in front at the last minute to take the prize with its print optimization software.

Eleven entrepreneurs showcased concepts in super succinct presentations and the approximately 1000 attendees from sustainably-minded businesses voted in real-time texts for the best idea…

The inventive entrepreneurs delivered presentations at breakneck speed for several worthwhile projects, from bike sharing networks to green games and smart energy conversion systems. PrintEco Office will receive $25,000 in marketing costs to help expand and get the word out about the green venture.

PrintEco Office provides software that formats documents efficiently and optimizes printing on as few pages as possible – eliminating that inevitable last page with only one line. It reduces waste and printing costs by 17 percent.

A free trial for individuals saves 100 pages, then costs $5, and for businesses, the price is $11 for 1-25 workstation/users.
