The Top 50 were selected from a field of hundreds of companies by a panel of expert judges comprised of engineers, utility administrators, analysts, consultants and entrepreneurs.
The judges selected winners based on four criteria: Intellectual Property, Technology, Market Potential and the company’s Team. The multifaceted judging matrices allowed judges to evaluate companies based on their investment potential as venture grade opportunities.
Among the winners were Ecosphere Technologies, Miox, Water Conservation Technology Inc, and Aqua-Pure. For the complete list, including posters submitted by each company, visit the competition gallery.
