Hello Cleantech helps cleantech companies accelerate and simplify the process of finding new investment partners for no up-front fee
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
A new service from cleantech research and advisory company Kachan & Co. helps clean technology companies find funding for their cleantech ventures and provides cleantech investors with a new source of deal flow.
Hello Cleantech™ is a new program, open to new or established cleantech innovation companies in all regions seeking equity financing of any amount at any financing stage, including early stage or growth capital.
Cleantech companies seeking investment fill out an online form and agree to terms and conditions. Kachan & Co. reviews applications and accepts companies on the basis of perceived attractiveness to venture investors, using criteria such as but not limited to innovation, differentiation vs. competitors, market opportunity and apparent ability to execute.
Information on companies accepted to the program is distributed to more than 7,000 institutional venture investors worldwide with a history or stated thesis of investing in clean technology innovation. Investors receive an email once a month with abstracts of latest companies accepted, and may review companies already in the program still seeking capital.
Companies accepted into Hello Cleantech enter into an agreement to pay a finder's fee upon the successful completion of an agreement with a prospective investor or customer to which an introduction is facilitated by the program.
“In an uncertain venture investment environment, capital raises in cleantech are taking longer than ever,” said Dallas Kachan, Managing Partner, Kachan & Co. “Hello Cleantech was designed to provide maximum benefit to clean technology companies with zero out-of-pocket costs—helping cleantech companies accelerate and simplify the process of finding new investment partners for no up-front fee.”
