Hydrovolts Finalist in Bend Venture Conference
Seattle-based hydropower turbine developer Hydrovolts has been selected as one of five finalists up for $175,000 in venture funding at the 7th annual Bend Venture Conference. The company, founded in 2007, will pitch its concept and business idea in a shark-tank style competition at the conference on October 15. Earlier this month Hydrovolts scored a $250,000 development deal with civil engineering firm DLZ Corp. that could turn into a $20 million contract. The company is also one of 15 semifinalists in the Pacific Northwest region of the Cleantech Open. The region will announce three finalists to move up to the national competition on Monday.
