Evaluating cleantech startups

Martha Farmer, CEO of North Shore InnoVentures, helped judge the startup companies that competed in CleanTech Open's business competition.

The 163 semifinalists were selected from a pool of more than 285 cleantech entrepreneurs across the company who competed in this year's CleanTech Open.

Judges used a 1-5 rating system to evaluate different aspects of each company in the competition. The most difficult task, Farmer said, was arguing and reasoning with other judges as they all tried to come to a consensus about which companies deserved to be semifinalists.

The complete list of semifinalists can be found here.
