Cleantech Investors Are Not Just VC Firms
Many investors use the i3 platform to discover investment targets, whereas corporate acquisition teams log on to assist their innovation sourcing efforts. In addition to capturing data like revenue, paid-in capital, sector, and location, the i3 platform tracks global investment activities across the entire cleantech ecosystem. Geographical data can be visualized in maps, and quantifiable data can be screened by a wide range of filters and is exportable.
