More about the company:
OnGreen is an online/offline network connecting the world’s best cleantech innovators with investors and partners from around the world. We use our website, personal network and matching events to bring together key players in the fragmented global green economy.
The process starts with our website, www.ongreen.com, where companies post standardized profiles and funding requests and then network with investors, experts and other industry leaders who can help them grow their business. We have organized the Green Economy into 240 specific categories, so we are able to match members based on their particular niche and interests.
We’ve made good progress since launching in July 2010. Here are some key success metrics.
300+ companies posting funding requests from 35 countries.
80,000 cleantech patents categorized and searchable in our database.
$2.2 billion in total funding requests.
18,000 unique visitors per month.
50% investor contact rate – 2-3 contacts per company.
10 demo and/or matching events in last 12 months.
We work with federal and local governments to facilitate cleantech development.
In June 2011 President Obama’s Office of Science and Technology praised OnGreen for “accelerating innovation.”
In the U.S., we’ve hosted events with everyone from the City of Los Angeles to the US Patent & Trademark Office.
In China, we’re partners with the Department of Commerce of Jiangsu, China’s 2nd-wealthiest province, as well as with three of the leading technology parks around Shanghai.
Helped by our Shanghai-based investors, we have established OnGreen as a bridge between Chinese capital and foreign (mainly U.S.) innovation. Recent highlights:
