Qi3 is pleased to be supporting the Rushlight Awards 2010. The closing date for entries is 31 October 2010 and the Gala Awards Dinner will follow on 27 January 2011.
The Rushlight Awards are a celebration and promotion of the leading organisations throughout the UK and Ireland which have furthered environmental technology and innovation in the fields of:
- Renewable energy
- Clean fuels
- Power generation
- Energy efficiency
- “Green” products and services
- Resource minimisation
- Environmental management
- Environmental monitoring and analysis.
If you have developed a technology or introduced any form of innovation associated with cleantech, then there will be at least one of the 24 direct entry categories which will be suitable for you to promote your achievements. To enter, register at Rushlight Awards.
Qi3 is offering at least three prizes of individual business benchmarking sessions. These sessions identify the gaps in a company’s commercial proposition (both for engaging in sales activity and in gaining investors’ confidence) and map out the actions required to fill the gaps. For further information on Qi3’s support for environmental sustainability and the new Qi3 Accelerator investment fund, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The awards are supported by a host of organisations, including DECC, Carbon Trust, Technology Strategy Board, Energy Savings Trust, Renewables Advisory Board, CIWM, SEERAD, EPSRC, NESTA, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, Environment Agency, WRAP, UKERC, Advisory Council on Carbon Abatement Technologies and Renewable Fuels Agency.
These awards stand out as the only UK and Ireland wide awards for technology, innovation and commerce that have advanced society’s capabilities to live in a sustainable way. The awards are wholly independent, both in the form of the judging and also in the context of not being connected with any particular journal or publication. Every organisation has a fair chance to win a coveted award which will be widely publicised. Indeed, all entries are invited to be included as a one-page promotion at no cost in a complete book of entries after the event.
Qi3 and Sustainability Enterprise
Qi3 offers hands-on business development support and technology market evaluation technology companies; and fully comprehensive analysis and advice to companies seeking to improve their performance. We enjoy the buzz of working with New Technology Enterprises with novel technologies, from “virtual companies” with no full-time staff to companies with 50 and over. We also get a kick out of helping divisions of diversified Technology Corporations grow in to new application and technological markets through the development of strategic alliances and supply chain partnerships.
The new Qi3 Accelerator programme provides risk investment, supporting companies to rapidly commercialise their products. We offer funds and commercial management support to businesses in the environmental sustainability and security domains in two modes: “Accelerate to Market” for companies seeking rapid market entry and “Accelerate to Growth” for companies with potential for rapid revenue growth. Qi3 has allocated a significant fund to support a limited number of projects, to ensure that ideas are commercialised to their full potential.
