Ecosummit Award 2013
Ecosummit is the Smart Green Business Network for cleantech startups, investors and corporates to accelerate smart green innovation. Ecosummit acts as a smart green quality filter promoting companies that are valuable for our ecology, economy and society – online and offline at our events.
Our 5th conference Ecosummit Berlin 2013 took place on 4-5 June 2013 at the Radialsystem. For the second time, ECO13 Berlin featured the Ecosummit Award 2013 which brings fame (publicity) and fortune (prize money) to the best early and late stage smart green startups.
We have assembled an awesome ECO13 Award Jury with 33 members representing smart green VCs, corporates, utilities, service providers and specialised press. To select the ECO13 Award winners, the expert jury judges product innovation (value proposition and technology), business potential (business model and revenues) and environmental benefit.
We are still looking for more sponsors that want to contribute to the prize money of Ecosummit Award 2013.
