EnerTech Capital is Named in the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 As Winner of the “Financial Investor of the Year” Award
EnerTech Capital, a private venture capital firm focused on investing in mid stage companies that offer products or services that dramatically improve the profitability of producing or consuming energy, was named “Financial Investor of the Year” as part of the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 program.
Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make the most significant market impact.
As one of the top financial investment companies in cleantech, EnerTech Capital was the recipient of this year’s “Financial Investor of the Year” Award. The award is given each year to the financial investor with the highest proportion of Global Cleantech 100 companies in that year’s list, as a percentage of their overall qualifying portfolio (subject to having a minimum of 10 companies that ‘qualify’ as possible Global Cleantech 100 companies).
“We are honored today to accept this prestigious award. Since 1996, we have maintained our focus on the Energy Technology/Cleantech sector and are currently investing out of our fourth fund. We would like to thank The Cleantech Group for the work they have done through the Cleantech 100 program to build a global ecosystem which brings together a great combination of companies, venture funds and strategic investors to help build successful Cleantech Companies” said Wally Hunter, Managing Director EnerTech Capital.
The Global Cleantech 100 list is collated by combining proprietary Cleantech Group research data, with weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global 100-person Expert Panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
This year’s finalized list featured 100 companies from 17 countries.
