Success of Cleantech Reflected in Top 10 Winners of Global Cleantech Cluster Association 2012 Later Stage Awards
Winners presenting today at Savannah International Clean Energy Conference, November 13, 2012

SAVANNAH, Ga., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As renewable energy and clean technology grows in global importance, the winners of the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) Later Stage Award reflect the increasing success of this $163.1 billion global market.  The GCCA's Global Top 10 Winners  represent the best of the association's over 4000 member companies and were recognized on November 12 in Savannah, at a dinner sponsored by Deloitte and McGuire Woods.  The GCCA Global Top 10 Winners were judged by 28 cleantech venture capital and private equity investors and serial entrepreneurs, who collectively manage over $3.5 billion in global clean technology investment. The winning companies will present their technologies in a forum today at the Savannah International Clean Energy Conference.


"Cleantech and sustainability are no longer a niche. They are out performing most market sectors in growth, even during the recession," said Ben Taube, Chairman of the GCCA. "These 2012 Top 10 winners are indicative of the increasing strength of their sectors."

In total, 200 companies were nominated by cleantech member clusters for the 2012 Later Stage Awards. That number was later narrowed to the Global Top 30 Semi-Finalists and then to the Top 10 Winners.

"With so many great cleantech companies, it was extremely difficult to narrow them down to just 10," said Shawn Lesser, co-founder of the GCCA and Watershed Capital Group. "The Global Top 10 Winners represent premier companies that are leading the way, both regionally and globally, to a brighter future for the cleantech industry."

The Global Top 30 were selected using the Keystone Compact™, a business and venture development tool developed by GCCA Head Judge Dr. Peter Adriaens, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategy at the Ross School of Business, along with Dr. Tim Faley, Managing Director of the Zell-Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies both located at the University of Michigan.

"We've used the Keystone Method since 2006 and it has proved effective in pinpointing companies which hold strong potential for profits and investability," said Adriaens. "These winners are an excellent representation of the types of innovations currently taking place in the cleantech industry."
