First intelligence service to track key businesses vital for preserving Earth’s resources launched Monday 11 February 2008 PDF Print release date: immediate The increasing interest in creating green industries around renewable energies, efficient resource use and pollution management now has a business intelligence service to track changes and trends. StrategyEye Cleantech, which is aimed at venture capitalists, technologists and key business decision makers, uses a unique and highly visual mapping system to give a battlefield view of developments in this emerging sector. The online search engine uses its own analysts and highly-filtered intelligence from more than 1,500 specialized bloggers to fill its constantly updated map. All the bloggers are expert at tracking merger and acquisition activity, allowing StrategyEye Cleantech to often break news long before conventional wire services. It monitors the deal activities of more than 3,000 companies worldwide. “The map is key to our unique service, allowing our clients to track multiple and complex markets in a straightforward way that just isn’t possible with conventional business intelligence providers,” explained Jeremy Phillips, chief operating officer for StrategyEye Cleantech. “What this also means is being able to spot investment opportunities because StrategyEye Cleantech allows users to see emerging patterns” Why now? • Corporate finance teams are converging traditional energy and environmental coverage into a single entity - cleantech. • Government incentives are growing the sector, attracting venture capitalists as never before. • An estimated $60 billion is currently invested in Cleantech research and development. • More specialist investment funds based around Cleantech are appearing. StrategyEye Cleantech is intended to reach decision makers in major energy corporations, corporate consumers, corporate social responsibility champions, investors and technology developers. “They all need to see where the opportunities and connections lie and what trends are defining the market place,” said Jeremy Phillips. StrategyEye Cleantech is the latest development from StrategyEye, a multi-sector intelligence provider that also covers the telecoms, media and technology arenas.
