Organization Aims To Accelerate Clean Technology Adoption and Foster Leading Innovations
ATLANTA, GA--November 8, 2010-- Today, over ten clean technology clusters around the world banned together to create a conduit for clean technology collaboration across the world and spotlight the very best in established clean technology. Called the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA), the organization serves as a gateway for cleantech companies to access global capital, new markets, inﬂuential networks, technology resources, and best practices. With its annual Later Stage and Most Impactful awards the organization will vet the very best in established clean technology and offer winners international investment exposure and support.
“The world does not have the luxury to wait for the next, game changing clean technologies to gradually rise to the surface” said Shawn LEsser of Sustainable World Capital and one of the co-founders of the GCCA. “With Global Cleantech we are amplifying the power of clusters around the world and moving the cleantech industry closer to established success and increased market adoption.”
Global Cleantech takes a two pronged approach to fostering the success of clean technology around the world, through facilitating collaboration between cleantech clusters and its annual awards. The Later Stage Awards vet the very best, as well as the most impactful companies in the industry, to expose them to the investment exposure and business support they need to succeed. Judges are prominent investors from around the world, including: US Venture Partners (United States), BASF Venture Capital GmbH (United States), UK TIʼs Global Entrepreneur Programme, SOFIANOVA Partners (France), and Mountain Cleantech AG (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) to name a few. To win, companies must have a proven technology, revenue and customers, as well as be nominated by a GCCA member cluster, thus bolstering the clusters, as well as emerging companies within the clusters.
