CleanEquity Monaco 2010 - Registration Now Open

LONDON--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - CleanEquity Monaco announces the launch of its new website. Registration for the March 4th and 5th 2010 event is now open. The conference showcases up to 50 of the world's most exciting next generation clean technology companies. Delegates will comprise top-level specialist investors, established industry players, key policy makers and media representatives, national and international.

CleanEquity are pleased to announce the support of The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, who will be joining Monaco hosts and collaborators, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Monte-Carlo SBM. The Stelios Foundation's key objectives, the "Three E's": Education, Entrepreneurship and Environment, are synergistic with the event's core mission. CleanEquity has included these tenets over the past three years via its university competition, awards ceremony and sponsorships. CleanEquity will be working closely with the Stelios Foundation to further encourage active involvement from international university students. Benefactor, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, is offering the "Stelios Award for Young Cleantech Entrepreneur". The prize will consist of a EUR 10,000 gift, which will be presented at the CleanEquity awards ceremony on Friday 5th March - exact terms will be explained on the CleanEquity website.

At the recent UN General Assembly meeting, over 100 world nations emphasised their support in the fight against climate change; a call for necessary action to take place at Copenhagen in December was constantly reiterated. Given the implications of these policies on all CleanEquity participants, our partner, the United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), will be present in March to guide delegates and companies through the regulatory challenges that lie ahead and the implications on investment, innovation and entrepreneurship.

In keeping with the objective of providing next generation cleantech companies with the necessary tools to successfully commercialise their technologies, a select group of corporate finance advisors and communications firms have been chosen to partner with Innovator Capital. This corporate finance consortium includes: Bio-Code Incubation (Tokyo), Invest Securities (Paris) and Navigator Capital Advisors (Mumbai). The public relations, media and communications partnership comprises: Allen & Caron (New York); Carbon International (London); Concept and Zzebra PR (Mumbai) and MC Services (Munich).

The Clean Technology industry continues to evolve and CleanEquity has further refined its company selection process - an original and strategic business plan is a prerequisite and a creative, tactical marketing plan to instil confidence in investors and strategic partners is essential to ensure successful commercialisation. The following three organisations have already been selected to present at next year's event:

* Big Room (Canada) has attracted significant press in its
  competition for the rights to operate the Dot Eco (.eco) Internet
  extension.  This new top level domain would join existing
  extensions like .com, .org, and .info. Big Room's vision for .eco
  is to create an open, global platform for companies,
  organisations, and people to share their actions towards
  sustainability. Co-founder Trevor Bowden notes, "this is a unique
  opportunity for the global sustainability community to come
  together to build an innovative tool for transparency".
* Planet Green Bottle Corporation (PGBC - Canada), is sole licensor
  and co-developer of a unique technology from Wells Plastics (UK).
  The technology, which PGBC sells as an additive, is blended with
  virgin or recycled PET pellets during the manufacturing process,
  and contrary to their competition, incurs no implementation costs
  or disruption to the recycling stream, while maintaining the
  shape and functionality of a standard PET container for at least
  2 years before it begins to oxo-biodegrade within 20
  years compared to the current 1000+ year standard.
* Riversimple (UK) will be exhibiting its open source urban
  technology demonstrator at the 2010 CleanEquity vehicle display.
  Riversimple believes that to affect a total industry shift
  towards energy efficient vehicles, it is not just the final
  products that need to be re-designed, the business model and
  value network must be redesigned too.

CleanEquity provides these companies with access to all the resources they will need through the various stages of development. Video interviews with CEOs, compliments of etv Media Group (2009 videos can be seen at and complimentary press release distribution by CleanEquity's partner, the Hugin Group are available again this year. All presenting companies will be eligible to be nominated for the CleanEquity Awards, which will be presented by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco at the closing session.
