Santa Clara/CA, 17 May 2012 – Luxembourgish cleantech company Epuramat announced today it has been selected as a winner of TiE Silicon Valley’s TiE50 Award 2012, an exclusive list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures worldwide.
The TiE50 expert committee selected the 50 most emerging companies from a pool of more than 2,100 promising startups from the categories cleantech and energy, software, internet, mobile and life sciences. This year’s 4th annual awards program evaluated the winners on three criteria – business model, intellectual property value and leadership team. The judges are among the most experienced industry experts, CEOs and serial entrepreneurs with specific domain expertise and worked independently in their selection process.
As Epuramat has been considered as TiE50 finalist company already in 2011, being now a winner has a particular significance for the emerging cleantech company. “Being considered by the world’s largest network for entrepreneurs for the second time and honored as one of the winners in 2012 is a great success for us and recognizes our company development. Within the last two years we have been able to successfully establish the Box4Water, our containerized wastewater treatment system, on the market of decentralized wastewater treatment solutions,” said Epuramat CEO Bogdan Serban.
