Measurabl Ranked in Top 30 for Global Cleantech Cluster Association Award
Cleantech San Diego member company Measurabl, the cloud-based solution for sustainability reporting and data management, is proud to announce its inclusion in the Global Top 30 for the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) 2014 Later Stage Awards. The prestigious Top 30 consist of mid-to late-stage companies that originate from a variety of cleantech industries and have a proven track record in their home market, with the goal to expand internationally.
Using the Keystone Compact Method, each company was evaluated based on their position for value capture in their industry, and investment grade. The Global Top 10 winners and one Grand Prize winner will be determined by a panel of investors and announced at the 5th annual CleanTech Investing Seminar in Lausanne, Switzerland on December 3, 2014.
“The 2014 Global Top 30 companies exhibit market strength, breakthrough innovation, and a competitive position for growth,” said Dr. Peter Adriaens, Head Judge of the GCCA Later Stage Awards, developer of the Keystone Compact™ and associated scoring method, and CEO of the Keystone Compact Group Ltd, a global strategy and investment-level business analytics company. “Determining the nominations from over 100 to 30 follows a competitive and robust analytic process, the Top 30 represents some of the world’s most esteemed cleantech companies based on potential investability in their various cleantech industry sectors.”
Measurabl was nominated to the GCCA Later Stage Awards by Cleantech San Diego. Founded in April 2013 by Matt Ellis, the former Director of Sustainability Solutions at CBRE, Measurabl’s cloud-based software automatically aggregates non-financial (“sustainability”) data and simplifies the process of disclosing it to third party surveys and benchmarks. Its unique freemium business model, intuitive user interface, and set of open APIs have made it possible for companies around the world to start collecting data and reporting instantly at no cost.
“Non-financial data is the new coin of the realm,” Ellis explains. “Investors, regulators, and consumers are demanding this information, and Measurabl will be at the center of how this information is collected, analyzed, and shared.”
The Top 30 semi-finalists are being evaluated by an extensive list of venture capital and cleantech judges who ultimately select the winners for the Later Stage Award. With more than $3.5 billion invested in clean technology, the GCCA judges include SJF Ventures, Blue Hill Partners, Spring Capital, Sofinnova Partners and many more.
The GCCA Later Stage Awards ceremony will be held on December 3, 2014 at the CleanTech Investing Seminar in Lausanne, Switzerland. This event brings together the very best game-changing technologies and entrepreneurs with a wide range of cleantech investors, corporate investors and family offices. The GCCA portions of the agenda are organized by GCCA Chairman and co-founder
of swisscleantech Christian Hauselmann.
