SAVortex, recognised as one of the UK's most innovative and fast growing Cleantech companies, has earned a place on an entrepreneurial UKTI backed "Clean and Cool" trade mission to San Francisco, with the aim of opening up business to the US market.
Syed Ahmed, founder of SAVortex, said: "This is truly an honour and the mission to the US gives us the chance to pitch for the next level of funding we need to expand and develop our UK innovations further. We are a British design, manufacturing and supplier of the Vortex Eco Smart hand dryer; we took the risk and set up in a dire recession with little money, bags of ideas and lots of energy. We are a company on a mission to take boring energy hungry hand dryers and introduce innovative Energy Smart Vortex dryers."
SAVortex was selected to be one of 16 of the best in class and then again shortlisted to be one of the top 5 companies to be highlighted by the Technology Strategy Board, The Long Run Venture and the Co-sponsorship Agency, supported by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and other private sector sponsors.
Speaking at the launch at the London Stock Exchange The Minister for Climate Change, Greg Barker said:Â "It's a credit to the renewed groundswell in ambition and the confidence for growth among young and enterprising small businesses that so many applied for a place on this Clean and Cool Mission. I'm proud that we've got a delegation, not only of extremely impressive future exports but of such variety, and it's of course due to the collaborative efforts and resources of the public and private sector collective that have made this Mission."
The 16 Cleantech companies will depart for San Francisco on the 24th March, returning on 31st March after a week-long agenda packed with investor meetings and networking opportunities, created by the Mission partners.
UK Trade & Investment's Chief Executive Nick Baird said: "These highly innovative companies represent the best of British."
