In a competition with 30 other new ventures presenting at National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s 28th annual clean technologies investor event, Stone Mountain walked away with an Outstanding Venture Award. A panel of judges from amongst the financial community / investor attendees rated each presentation across four criteria. SMTI was one of three winners out of the 30 competitively scored and screened ventures that were invited to present at the conference, and was the top-scoring entrant in its group (pre-commercial).
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory holds the Industry Growth Forum every year in Denver, and is the nation’s premier clean tech and energy investment event. It brings entrepreneurial companies together with both venture capital and strategic investors. The Forum provides opportunities for thought-provoking panels, technology breakout sessions, and structured 1-on-1 sessions; as well as the presentations and business case judging contest. Since 2003, companies presenting at the forum have collectively raised more than $5 billion in growth financing.
