参加企業のフォローアップの仕組み

The Cleantech Open Alumni Program is designed to advance the business goals of companies who have previously competed in the Business Competition. The goals of the program are to foster innovation, connection, and communication, and to help the alumni continue to build business momentum.

The Alumni Program tracks the progress and success of the companies enrolled in the program, and these metrics enable sponsors to see the value in their investment in the Cleantech Open. Key metrics for our alumni companies are:

  • Funding
  • Job creation
  • Revenue
  • Customers
  • Patents
  • Products
輩出企業への教育

Throughout the year, the Cleantech Open provides ongoing business education to its members and alumni. A series of five workshops and seminars is targeted specifically to Alumni:

  • Sustainability
  • Funding
  • Marketing
  • Policy
  • Business Operations
ディレクトリーの構築

A directory of alumni companies, including product offerings, team members and selected case studies is produced annually. This directory is available to the public allowing the Cleantech Open to showcase its successful companies and providing sponsors and the general community with access to and information about the alumni.

表彰の仕組み

Each year at the Cleantech Open Global Forum, an alumni company is honored for achieving success in three key areas: funding progress, customer acquisition, and product implementation.
