The Wall Street Journal Names Hara a Top Ten Venture-Backed Green Company

SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hara, a leader in energy and resource data management software, has been recognized as a Top Ten Venture-Backed Green Company by the Wall Street Journal.


The Top 10 ranking seeks to identify standout green companies with high potential to achieve success. Of the ten companies ranked, Hara is the only SaaS-based enterprise software company, and was selected based on a rigorous process that reviewed amount of capital raised in the past three years; track records of the executive team, managers and investors; and finally, which company offers the best odds for success.

The accompanying Wall Street Journal article acknowledges challenging times for the clean-tech industry as a whole, but also states that the companies attracting investor interest today are "focusing on making existing industries more efficient and sustainable." Successful clean-tech start-ups do this through software and services at "the nexus of information technology and clean technology."

"The recognition of Hara as a top venture-backed company is an affirmation of the business results that our customers achieve through better energy and resource data management." states Dan Leff, CEO, Hara.
