Ticino company Skypull, which has developed an innovative electricity generation system that uses high altitude winds, took part last Tuesday in the sixth edition of Cleantech Innovate, an annual event organised in the prestige Royal Institution in Mayfair, London, to present revolutionary and emerging low-carbon technology innovations from the UK and the rest of the world .
Skypull was selected to attend the event as one of the 36 finalist companies, each of which was given the opportunity to present its projects to a select audience of several hundred investors, support agencies and media involved in the international green economy.
The selection process for this showcase for game-changing innovations and the people behind them was based on four essential criteria: the potential value of the business idea, the newness of the innovation, the feasibility of the business plan and the reason why that particular company represents the best solution for the market.
“Being selected as one of the Cleantech Innovate 2018 finalists is definitely a great achievement,” commented Skypull CEO Nicola Mona. “Particularly considering that we also got the opportunity to present Skypull to an audience of Cleantech world professionals – many of them also stopped to discuss our idea with us. So we really did achieve one of our goals in coming here: spreading the word about the Skypull idea and its potential across the world. We also made new contacts during the event with possible backers, inventors, promotors and suppliers of technologies complementary to ours with the aim of making Skypull even more versatile”.
