Harris & Harris Group Announced As Top Ranked High-Tech Investor By SBIR Source And As An Investor In Innovation By Forbes.Com

New York, NY | Posted on February 19th, 2014

Additionally, Harris & Harris Group is characterized as a venture capital firm that invests in true innovation in an article posted on Forbes.com by J.J Colao titled, "Are These The VC Firms That Actually Fund Innovation?" The article discusses Harris & Harris Group's portfolio companies, D-Wave Systems, Inc., Solazyme, Inc., and Nantero, Inc., as innovators in their respective industries. The article can be accessed at www.forbes.com/sites/jjcolao/2014/02/18/are-these-the-vc-firms-that-actually-fund-innovation/. D-Wave Systems was also ranked by MIT Technology Review as one of the top 50 smartest companies. The article can be accessed at www.mediawebsite.net/elpaso/story/?catSetID=7007&catID=291157&nrid=245959081&page=1.

The articles discuss that science-based investing has been the foundation of the United States for many centuries. While a variety of consumer based platforms have come and gone, the foundation of some of the largest and most prominent companies in the world were built based on the hard sciences; biology, physics, chemistry, material science and analytics.

"We believe our continued commitment to investing at the intersection of biology and other scientific disciplines will lead to innovations commercialized by transformative companies using disruptive science in the future," said Douglas W. Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group. "We are very appreciative that SBIR Source and J.J. Colao from Forbes recognized the importance and major contribution we have made and continue to make by guiding our early-stage companies to become global disruptors."
