Congratulations to you and your team! Motiv Power Systems has made the 2012 GoingGreen Global 200 Ones to Watch list for being one of the most promising private greentech companies on the planet. Your company was nominated by several top firms.

AlwaysOn will be officially announcing its “GoingGreen Global 200” this week. Christine Baroumand from our team will forward the PR related information to you and your designated team members before we make the big AO 200 announcement, so you can maximize the exposure your company receives for this honor.

As a winning CEO, we would be honored if you would speak on a panel session in your sector at our annual GoingGreen Venture Summit at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco on November 27th and 28th, where your company will also be honored on the 27th. There is no cost to be in the program.

Please check out the agenda, and let me know where you or one of your co-founders might fit in:

Christine Baroumand will also forward to you an invitation to a private “CEO/Founder Dinner” on November 27th proceeding the first day of our GoingGreen event.

Please let me know if you can make the GoingGreen Venture Summit and if you can suggest a speaking opportunity in the program that meets your communication goals.

We look forward to hosting you and your team at GoingGreen Venture Summit next month, and congratulations to you and your team again for making the GoingGreen Global 200 Ones to Watch list!
