ecoConnect connects with global association

The GCCA describes itself as “a partnership of the Top 20 Cleantech Clusters globally”. “Clusters” include Eco World Styria in Austria, the Green Way in Dublin, the Finnish Cleantech Cluster and French Cleantech, along with others in the US and Canada. Companies, universities and research institutions are also potential members. The association’s Later Stage Award will be open for entries in May 2011 with the aim of vetting out the most promising later stage Cleantech companies and introducing them to growth capital and management guidance. According to Shawn Lesser, president of Sustainable World Capital, in Georgia, USA, the aim of GCCA is to represent more than 50 cleantech clusters, 10,000 companies, and 500 universities and research institutions by December 2011.
