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 transformation.

"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 Group.

"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."
