The Later Stage Awards were launched in 2011. This The GCCA Later Stage Award Top 10 winners were selected from an original pool of 4000 eligible companies represented by the GCCA’s 33 member clusters. Each cluster conducted internal evaluations to nominate up to 10 companies in the 10 categories. In total, these member clusters nominated 185 companies for the 2011 Later Stage Award. That number was later narrowed to the Global Top 30 semi-finalists and the Top 10 winners.
The inaugural awards dinner was hosted by Dublin’s cleantech cluster The Green Way, at the city’s Mansion House. The event featured a full day conference titled the Dublin Cleantech Forum. Check out the photos here.
