Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Nokero is proud to announce that it is a finalist for ‘Colorado Companies to Watch.’ Sponsored by UMB Bank, the awards program recognizes Colorado businesses that have made a successful contribution to the state’s economy.
To qualify as a Company to Watch, businesses must be privately-held, headquartered in Colorado, and bring in $750,000 to $50 million in sales or working capital annually. The companies must develop valuable products or services, create quality jobs, enrich the communities in which they work, and benefit their industry as a whole.
Nokero’s patented solar light bulbs have been sold in 120 countries worldwide out of its Denver headquarters. Nokero helps to enrich lives around the world through sustainable and efficient energy solutions. Nominated as a company worth watching, Nokero represents the global solar industry at large as well as its home state of Colorado. Nokero’s success has been in part due to Coloradans who value sustainable business practices and ‘green’ energy solutions.
Governor John Hickenlooper said, “You look at these companies and what they have done and what they are doing, and it’s incredible. Over $400 billion in sales last year… added about 800 employees… these companies continue to grow year after year, they help the supply chain, they help companies around them to grow.”
The 2014 Colorado Companies to Watch will be announced and honored at the Marriott City Center’s annual celebration on June 20 in downtown Denver.
