Two Antenna Clients Honored as World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers
Cambrian Innovation and Silicor Materials recognized for breakthrough water and solar technologies
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Antenna, a strategic communications firm focused on bringing transformative technology to market, today announced that two clients have been selected as 2015 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers. Cambrian Innovation, a water and bioenergy technology provider, and Silicor Materials, Inc., a manufacturer of high-quality solar silicon, were selected for the prestigious award, which honors a class of 24 innovative companies from around the world that are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.
“The Antenna team consistently pushes Silicor's story through the noise and secures top-tier thought leadership opportunities for our company”
“Cambrian Innovation has a clear goal of taking on global water challenges, yet our novel technology requires some market education,” said Matthew Silver, Cambrian Innovation CEO. “Antenna has proven to be an invaluable partner to help us craft a clear story that validates our approach and resonates with a range of stakeholders. Our selection as a 2015 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer is a key milestone for our company, and we couldn’t have done it without Antenna.”
"The Antenna team consistently pushes Silicor's story through the noise and secures top-tier thought leadership opportunities for our company," said Terry Jester, CEO of Silicor Materials. "Being named a 2015 Technology Pioneer is a huge honor that thrusts Silicor into the global spotlight, and we are grateful for Antenna's guidance every step of the way."
“Antenna is honored to work with innovative companies working to solve the greatest challenges of our lifetime,” said Anna Cahill Leonard, Antenna president. “We are focused on translating complex ideas into compelling messages that help transformative companies gain the market traction they deserve. Silicor Materials and Cambrian Innovation are reshaping how we manage water and energy, and we congratulate them on this well-earned global recognition for their breakthrough technologies.”
Silicor Materials produces solar-grade silicon that enables solar photovoltaic (PV) cell and module manufacturers to increase their margins in an increasingly competitive global market. Leveraging a proprietary technology, Silicor provides the lowest-cost alternative to traditional polysilicon commonly used throughout the PV industry without compromising efficiency.
Cambrian Innovation has developed technology that reduces the cost and energy requirements of sustainably managing water resources. Unlike any water technology currently on the market, Cambrian uniquely employs a bioelectric technology to cost-effectively clean wastewater and generate significant clean energy in the process.
Each year since 2000, the World Economic Forum celebrates the power of technology and innovation by awarding companies on the cutting edge of their industries with the distinction of Technology Pioneers. Past winners have demonstrated the ability to harness creativity to design and create transformative solutions.
