We’re about to kick off publicity for GuateVerde 2010, but you may be wondering what happened to our finalists from 2009. Here’s a quick look at what they are up to now.
|Our winner, Quetsol, has a meeting with the First Lady next week for a possible outreach contract with the government placing photo-voltaic kits in homes.|
|Our special investment,Flowercin/Altec, is now Grupo Proamba – the name Altec turned out to be taken. They are nearly finished with their legalization process and are setting themselves up to include vermicomposting in their production techniques.|
|Set Renova has taken over a local business called Casa Solar. They are considering entering GV2010 to expand this business.
|Sistema Electricas is still hard at work doing diagnostics and has expanded their business to include a series of feasibility studies.|
|Ingecofun has not moved forward with their idea beyond the competition.|
|Reciclaje PET has not moved forward with their idea beyond the competition either.|
