The Global Cleantech Cluster Association has announced its winners for the 2013 Later Stage Award. They were judged by 22 cleantech venture capitalists, investors and serial entrepreneurs who collectively manage $3.5 billion in clean technology investment, lead by Head Judge Dr. Peter Adriaens.
The GCCA Later Stage Award Top 10 winners were selected from an original pool of 10,000 eligible companies represented by the GCCA’s 49 member clusters. Each cluster conducted internal evaluations to nominate up to 10 companies in the 10 categories. In total, these member clusters nominated 160 companies for the 2013 Later Stage Award. That number was later narrowed to the Global Top 30 semi-finalists and the Top 10 winners.
