AlwaysOn is proud to announce this year’s GoingGreen Global 200—the top emerging companies that are transforming big industry and creating viable business models for the green technology.
The AlwaysOn editorial team, along with partners at Morgan Stanley, SAP, KPMG, Hewlett-Packard, Goldman Sachs, Technology Partners, Bridge Bank, Sheppard Mullin, Silicon Valley Bank, NEA, and industry experts across the globe scoured the entrepreneurial community to identify the top 200 private companies that are transforming our world into a safer, more efficient, and environmentally friendly place, while at the same time creating high-growth businesses that offer huge upside potential for investors.
This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 proves that the greentech community is flourishing, and investment is stronger than ever. With maturity and growth during the past five years, the greentech industry is bursting with companies that are reinventing and creating cleaner and more-efficient energy, waste management, and materials solutions. As government incentives and grants dry up in the midst of debt crises and economic uncertainty, greentech innovators are becoming increasingly creative in getting their ideas to market. The number of flourishing private companies on this year’s list proves once again that greentech is here to stay and committed to changing the way humanity exists.
This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 companies are leaders amongst their peers and developing game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to push outside the bounds of existing markets and away from entrenched players. Companies were selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Brammo was named a Winner in the Green Automobiles and Transportation category.
