Clean Energy Trust (a nonprofit cleantech accelerator) announced to a sold-out crowd at their Co_Invest Cleantech event in Chicago yesterday that 75F had taken home the largest investment for their building control solutions delivering operational efficiencies, improved productivity and optimal occupant experiences. 75F is one of four new portfolio companies (and the only MN-based company) selected from over 100 applicants; and, the crowd of attendees voted 75F as the People’s Choice.
Clean Energy Trust (CET) awarded 75F with at total of $270,000, representing the largest of four investments in new companies, totaling $700,000. The CO_INVEST Cleantech event brings entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and students together for a day celebrating a shared belief in the power of entrepreneurs to take on the hardest challenges to sustainable life on the planet. The 75F presentation went over so well, the crowd voted 75F the People's Choice winner, adding $20,000 investment to the already allocated $250,000. The people have spoken!
So why did 75F take home the top prize?
Smart City and Smart Building technology is beginning to boom in U.S. cities like Seattle, Portland, and Nashville, as well as cities abroad like Paris, Singapore and Tel Aviv. But how are other cities leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) to get smart and connected, to better serve their citizens and visitors?
We've been very busy, and having a bit of fun along the way, building out the expanded 75F Solutions Portfolio.
