BOULDER, Colo.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Tendril®, a provider of customer engagement applications, today announced it was named in the prestigious 2013 Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group, a global market intelligence and consulting firm helping business leaders connect with innovation. Tendril has been named to the list every year since it was first created in 2009.
“Fifty-one new entrants and noticeable shifts in sub-sectors and company types commanding the broadest level of support speak to a transition of opinion of which types of companies deal-makers believe today are the most likely to have significant market impact in a five to 10 year timeframe.”
The Global Cleantech 100 list is unique because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies around the world, focusing on those companies market experts feel are most likely to make significant market impact over the next five to 10 years.
“We are honored to be among a handful of companies selected as part of the Global Cleantech 100 for the fifth consecutive year,” said Adrian Tuck, CEO of Tendril. “We have spent this past year working with industry leaders and innovators to pioneer new and better ways to help energy service providers engender stronger, more collaborative relationships with their customers. This award is testament to the hard work that went into delivering a modern, open and secure platform that enables utilities to build a navigable path to customer engagement.”
The Global Cleantech 100 list is derived from Cleantech Group’s own data and research, combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations, and the viewpoints of a global 90-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.
“The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our vision to help corporations and investors connect with innovation around the world,” said Sheeraz Haji, CEO of Cleantech Group. “This list celebrates inspiring entrepreneurs, and serves as the industry standard on gauging where innovation is headed across key sectors.”
“The composition of the 2013 Global Cleantech 100 represents a distinct shift in thinking from deal-makers in the marketplace,” said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group’s managing director, Europe & Asia. “Fifty-one new entrants and noticeable shifts in sub-sectors and company types commanding the broadest level of support speak to a transition of opinion of which types of companies deal-makers believe today are the most likely to have significant market impact in a five to 10 year timeframe.”
5,864 companies were nominated this year from 60 countries. The end result was 100 companies from 18 countries. The complete list of 100 companies was revealed on October 9th at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit & Gala in Washington, D.C. and can be found at http://www.cleantech.com/global100/global-cleantech-100/.
