Exosect Named a 2010 Global Cleantech 100 Company

The Global Cleantech 100 highlights promising private clean technology companies from all around the world.

| October 13, 2010

WINCHESTER, UK – Exosect announced it has been named in the prestigious 2010 Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group, providers of leading global market research, events and advisory services for the cleantech industry. The list is produced as part of the Global Cleantech 100 program, run in collaboration with the Guardian News and Media and sponsored by Autodesk.
 
The Global Cleantech 100 highlights promising private clean technology companies from all around the world — companies that are most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years, in the eyes of the world’s cleantech experts.

The answer is derived by the Cleantech Group, which draws on its own data and research, and combines it with the weighted qualitative judgments of both hundreds of cleantech industry insiders, and the viewpoints of a 60-strong, international expert panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.

4,616 nominations were received from 3,260 unique sources, giving us a long list of 3,138 companies drawn from 50 countries.  218 companies were presented to the expert panel for final input. The end result was 100 companies from 14 countries.

The 60-strong expert panel is drawn from well-respected organisations in cleantech innovation from around the world, including leading investors such as Emerald Technology Ventures, Generation Investment Management, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, New Enterprise Associates, SAM Private Equity, Sequoia Capital, and VantagePoint Venture Partners, and from a wide variety of corporations from many different industries, such as BASF, GE, Honeywell, IBM, Procter & Gamble, Siemens, and Veolia.

“The second Global Cleantech 100 shines a spotlight on which companies and which technology areas the global innovation community is currently most excited about, from a commercial standpoint,” said Richard Youngman, MD, Europe & VP, Global Research at Cleantech Group.” There have been significant changes since 2009: more Asian companies and less renewable energy generation companies attest to the growing diversification of cleantech innovation. Cleantech is a broader phenomenon than just clean energy. The wider issues of resource scarcity are starting to gain attention and traction.”

 “The Global Cleantech 100 list represents the most rigorous, serious attempt made yet to provide a scorecard of the progress that is being made by cleantech companies. This year’s expert panel involved a greater level of corporate participation than last year’s, and we also saw an increased presence of companies from China in the Top 100 list – both trends that we at VantagePoint see as critical signs of the times," commented Stephan Dolezalek, the CleanTech Group Leader at VantagePoint Point Venture Partners. VantagePoint, for the second year in a row, had more investee companies in the 100 than any other investor.

Martin Brown, Managing Director at Exosect commented, “This is the second year running that we have been named in the Global Cleantech 100 and it is a testament to our unique technology platform. We have a remarkable and diverse development pipeline in which we can significantly reduce pesticides.  We’re not just helping to make food safer to eat, we’re helping the world’s farmers become more efficient.”

The complete list of 100 companies is being unveiled today at Cleantech Forum New York, http://events.cleantech.com/newyork/. Some of the companies will be showcased in New York today, others at the Guardian’s Cleantech Summit in London on 23 November 2010 (http://www.guardian.co.uk/cleantechsummit).
