Published in today’s issue, Boston-Power is recognized alongside other game-changing innovators such as Recyclebank, Suniva, eSolar and GreatPoint Energy, Inc. The Wall Street Journal’s Top 10 Clean-Tech Companies list debuted in 2010 and also included Boston-Power.
The 2011 ranking is published in conjunction with The Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics conference, a premier forum held March 2-4 in Santa Barbara, Calif. for the world’s top CEOs, policymakers, entrepreneurs and industry experts at the intersection of business and the environment. In addition to its inclusion, Boston-Power Founder and Executive Chairman Dr. Christina Lampe-Önnerud will present in the conference’s “Uncovering the Next Big Thing” session on Friday, March 4.
The survey, based on proprietary data from Dow Jones VentureSource, identifies companies that have the capital, executive experience and investor know-how to succeed. A team from venture-industry tracker VentureSource calculated the rankings based on a strict set of criteria applied to 516 U.S.-based venture-backed businesses in clean technology. On March 10, The Wall Street Journal plans to publish its 2011 Next Big Thing ranking of the top 50 US venture-backed companies across all industries, drawn from more than 5,700 firms.
“Boston-Power has embarked on our next stage of substantial growth,” said Dr. Lampe-Önnerud. “The momentum we’re experiencing with customers, partners and the financial community worldwide continues to increase. Longer lasting, better performing, faster charging, safer and more environmentally sustainable battery systems are in demand from virtually all industries – ranging from transportation and utility energy storage to notebook computers and other types of portable electronics. Boston-Power is committed to continuing to bring battery innovation to the market. Being named a top 10 clean-tech company for the second year in a row is a tremendous endorsement of our ongoing success in that mission.”
