The Clean Tech Open, the California-based non-profit encouraging the development of cleantech start-ups, kicked off its fourth annual competition season on Tuesday.
The 2009 competition will be the largest yet, open to contestants from all parts of the United States, with regional competitions in California and the Rocky Mountains.
Entrants are invited to compete in six categories: Air/Water/Waste, Energy Efficiency, Green Building, Renewable Energy, Smart Power, and Transportation.
Since 2007, the Clean Tech Open has helped more than 100 start-ups raise more than $125 million in funding. These companies (including Aurora Biofuels, Cool Earth Solar, and GreenVolts) today employ about 500 people.
New to this year's national competition will be a Grand Prize for one clean tech start-up –the largest prize awarded to date. Details on the competition and prizes will be announced at the Clean Tech Open Launch Event on March 19th, at San Jose City Hall. All entries must be received by May 30, 2009.
Further information can be found at the Clean Tech Open Website.
