LEWISTON – Daniel Gomez Iniguez, a 22-year-old multimillionaire who founded an alternative energy technology company while he still was in high school, will discuss his experiences and give tips on how to create a successful company with a global impact during a free public meeting at 7:30 p.m. today in the Castellani Art Museum on the campus of Niagara University.

Gomez and his partners co-founded a company called Solben in Monterrey, Mexico, that designed biodiesel production technology to be accessible in a developing economy.

The previous business model for producing biodiesel – a blend of vegetable oil or animal fats and diesel – relied on large, centralized production plants.

According to Inc. magazine, which named Gomez as one of its 30 Under 30 entrepreneurs in 2011, Solben’s sales were more than $1 million in 2010 and about $3 million in 2011.
