Emerging Technology PR Firm Antenna Group Builds Base in New Industrial Technologies
San Francisco, CA | October 12, 2005
At a time when demand is growing for clean
technology and nanotechnology is moving from the lab into practical
applications, Antenna Group, Inc. has added six clients to its growing New
Industrials practice, embracing emerging technology companies in nanotech,
cleantech, advanced materials and energy. The additions are Ecology
Coatings, the Foresight Nanotech Institute, HelioVolt, NanoDynamics,
Renewable Ventures and SiGNa Chemistry. All are promising ventures in what
Antenna founder Melody Haller foresees as a technology trend likely to
dominate the next few decades.
As a member of the State of California's Blue Ribbon Task Force on
Nanotechnology, Haller is seeing traditional industries being reinvented,
powered by advances in tools, information and materials science, and
responding to a business environment of increasingly constrained resources.
The excitement about both nanotech and cleantech are part of this larger
"Melody has been doing a fantastic job educating the media and the public
about the emergence of entrepreneurial firms who are at the forefront of
nanotech and cleantech," said former Clinton technology adviser Tom Kalil.
"The rise of these new industrials is critical to economic prosperity and
sustainable development, and Melody has been telling their story in a
compelling but responsible way."
Charlie Harris, CEO of Harris and Harris, the only publicly held VC fund
focused on "tiny tech," has watched several start-ups partner with Antenna
"There seems to be a correlation between companies getting commercial
traction and becoming clients of Antenna Group." Harris said.
"It's rewarding to see our strategic early investment grow into a dynamic
practice," said Haller. "Each of these companies is pioneering advances to
industry and will contribute to society in innovative ways."
