Newsweek's Eco-Friendly Companies, plus Aerogel Composite and P21
- In case you missed it last week, here are Newsweek's profiles of "Ten Eco-Friendly Companies," many of which will be pretty familiar to regular readers of this site.
- GreenShift announced a $500k investment in Aerogel Composite. We've discussed aerogels before, with Aspen Aerogels. GreenShift, which previously provided bridge financing for REC intermediary Sterling Planet and has made investments in a number of other cleantech startups, is taking 25% ownership.
- Germany's P21, which is developing stationary fuel cells, announced a 5M euro raise from existing investors Target Partners, Conduit Ventures, and Tech Fund Capital Europe. There appears to be room for a similar investment from a new investor.
