Supporting Early-Stage Green Businesses

  |   Cleantech San Diego, Events, SCRUB, Startup

On Feb. 13, CleanTECH San Diego’s Capital and Resources Committee held  its quarterly SCRUB event featuring presentations from three early-stage cleantech companies seeking business guidance and opportunities for networking within the San Diego cleantech community.

This quarter’s SCRUB presenters included:

  • Measurabl: Measurabl provides software that lowers the cost and complexity of aggregating, managing, and formatting sustainability information, so organizations of any type can now disclose sustainability performance regardless of their size, expertise or resources.
  • EDGEhome: Green Edge Technologies provides intelligent home control to consumers and new home-builders with their EDGEhome system. Different than many systems that exist, EDGEhome goes well beyond simple remote control and also measures energy usage at every outlet, every lighting circuit, and every appliance in the home.
  • Solar Umbrella: The winner of the 3rd Annual Zahn Challenge at San Diego State University, Solar Powered Umbrella is a patio umbrella that provides free, renewable energy through wall outlets and USB charging ports for coffee shops, homeowners, universities, resorts, and various businesses to provide power.

Attendees also heard from representatives of the Toronto Stock Exchange who led a discussion on the renewable energy and cleantech ecosystem in Canada and how it directly relates to the San Diego region.

The CleanTECH San Diego SCRUB is a quarterly program hosted by the CleanTECH San Diego Capital and Resources Committee to support local early-stage cleantech companies. SCRUB participants present their business plan and in return receive business guidance and key connections, including advice on access to capital, strategic partnerships, and professional services. CleanTECH San Diego members gain direct and regular exposure to the region’s new emerging technologies and an opportunity to ensure these companies are best positioned to succeed.

While the committee does not evaluate the technology, per se, they examine and test the feasibility of the business plan and consider how the company may improve.
