PALO ALTO, Calif. — February 21, 2017 — Maana, the pioneer of enterprise knowledge technology, today announced it was named in the 2016 Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch list, produced by Cleantech Group (CTG). The Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of up and coming companies that are catching the eye of leading investors in the market. The 8th edition of the Global Cleantech 100 list was published on January 23, 2017.

“The Global Cleantech 100 program is our annual in-depth research exercise to identify the innovative companies that leading players in the market are most excited by right now,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG. “By the nature of the list, the Ones to Watch truly represent the next cadre of exciting disruptive companies.”

“Maana is honored to have passed the rigorous vetting methodology and be mentioned alongside the other innovative companies in this year’s Global Cleantech 100 list,” said Babur Ozden, CEO and founder, Maana. “The Maana Knowledge Platform extends beyond the realm of data analytics by making human knowledge the centerpiece of business process and asset optimization.”

This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 325 companies, with these nominees reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel. The Ones to Watch list, a sister list to the annual Global Cleantech 100 list, is created from the top 250 of the shortlist. To qualify for either list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
