The Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) named the Global Top 10 Winners for its 6th GCCA Later Stage Awards 2016, and Wirepas has been listed among them.

The mid- to late-stage companies originate from the major cleantech industries, such as solar, wind and clean web, along with lighting, energy efficiency, mobility, urban agriculture and water. The Global top three and the GCCA Grand Prize Winner will be announced in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA on 13 December.

In total, there were 10 Finnish nominees for the award, but software company Wirepas was the only one that made it to the top crowd.

“The 2016 Global Top 10 Winners demonstrate investment grade, strong product differentiation, scalable business models and have market traction,” says Peter Adriaens, head judge of the GCCA Later Stage Awards. “Narrowing down the nominations from more than 105 to 10 follows a detailed and robust data analytics process. The 2016 Global Top 10 are some of the world’s most sought after and up-and-coming equity-investable cleantech companies across our member clusters.”

The Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) is a Swiss foundation providing access to capital, corporates, markets and insights.

Last year, Wirepas won the IoT Product Innovation Award at the European Utility Week.
