CleanEquity® Monaco 2017, hosted by Innovator Capital, the London based specialist investment bank and the Monaco Economic Board, closed on Friday 10th March with its traditional awards ceremony and address by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, the event co-founder.
CleanEquity showcased 32 world relevant, disruptive technologies sourced using a tried and tested process, with help from its international partners in Asia, Europe, Australasia, North America and South America. His Serene Highness conferred with the expert panel of judges, which selected the following companies for the CleanEquity Monaco 2017 Awards for Excellence:
AgriProtein (ZA) received the award for Technology Research; the company uses fly larvae fed on existing organic waste streams from food factories, supermarkets, farms and restaurants, to produce a sustainable source of natural protein. The company's three products are an insect based complete protein - MagMeal™, an extracted fat - MagOil™ and a rich residual soil conditioner - MagSoil™.
REstore (HQ in BE; offices in FRA, UK, GER, USA) received the CleanEquity 10th Anniversary Award for Best Company since inauguration of the event; the company provides advanced automated Demand Response programmes to Commercial & Industrial consumers and cloud-based Demand Side Management software to Utilities.
KDC Agribusiness (USA) received the award for Technology Development; the company has, in partnership with California Safe Soil, developed a new patented technology that digests and pasteurises fresh food waste within three hours, turning it into a sustainable organic liquid fertiliser and animal feed.
Iceotope Technologies (UK) received the award for Technology Commercialisation; the company has a developed product range utilising full submersion liquid cooling of IT. This removes the need for air infrastructure and enables deployment in any location. Additional benefits include reduction in capex, opex, floor space, energy and silent operation.
The runners up were NOHMs Technologies (USA) for Research, Halo Coffee (UK) for Development and Voltea (USA) for Commercialisation.
His Serene Highness said in His address:
"For 10 years I have had the pleasure of making this address at the close of your conference. Throughout that period, you have remained steadfast in your commitment to the project that we are recognising this afternoon. That project is founded on a belief that together we can innovate, develop and implement the products, processes and policies that will enable tomorrow to be cleaner, more efficient and ultimately more sustainable than today."
Mungo Park, Chairman of Innovator Capital and co-founder of CleanEquity Monaco, said:
"We thank His Serene Highness for His continued support, without which a 10th Anniversary for CleanEquity would have been an unlikely milestone. The role of technology innovation is still under-resourced by investors but this year we had a greater number of quality investors than in prior years. All participants should be proud of this achievement.
CleanEquity Monaco will return to the Principality in March 2018.
