03 Mar Rainforest Automation is Ready to Rocket!
Vancouver, BC – Rainforest Automation, a leader in energy management solutions, has been named to the 2015 Ready to Rocket Cleantech list by Rocket Builders in a program sponsored by PWC, Colliers International and others.
Rainforest Automation was selected due to the exceptional growth potential of the industry leading EMU and EAGLE products which provide customers and businesses with the ability to monitor and control their energy usage, and utilities with the ability to deploy new customer-facing programs for Connected Homes and Businesses. All groups can now make meaningful changes based on the Rainforest Automation technology.
This annual list is a predictor of private companies that will likely experience significant growth, venture capital investment or acquisition by a major player in the coming year due to their ability to leverage important industry trends and key partnerships as they pull into the lead in an emerging industry.
“We are thrilled to be on this list once again with other leading high growth companies,” says Chris Tumpach, President, Rainforest Automation. “2015 is shaping up to be a banner year for Rainforest Automation as we build on successful customer deployments. We are in the midst of an industry leading BC Hydro Energy Monitor program, where we have sold over 7,500 devices directly to customers in a period of 5 months, and we have other deployments in the works as well across Canada, the US, and Australia. We have the right products at the right time, and I am very grateful to my team in helping bring the company to where it is today.”
The Ready to Rocket list identifies technology companies that are uniquely well-positioned in their market segments, and covers three technology sectors: Information and Communications Technology (ICT), CleanTech (CT) and Life Science (LS). The list is the only predictive ranking of its kind in North America, and requires many months of rigorous sector and company analysis.
Dave Thomas, Senior Partner, Rocket Builders explains: “We identify companies that have proven their technology and are positioned well for growth. Our analysis of market trends led to our selection of Rainforest Automation as a Ready to Rocket Cleantech company.”
Rocket Builders managing partner, David Hansen further elaborates: “The tech industry in B.C. has very, very strong growth and strong companies in all three sectors now… Companies that make the list (are) in a high-growth market, have a unique competitive position and possess a “must-have” value proposition.”
