Looking Back on Three Great Quarters for Harvest in the Media
October 9, 2012
With 2012 three-fourths over, we thought early October would be a good time to settle in with a cup of apple cider and look back at what has already been a banner year for Harvest.
We started 2012 with significant business momentum including industry awards and a $125 million series C funding round in April, which Yuliya Chernova covered in an article for the Wall Street Journal. Chernova went into depth about the positive prospects for our business model, writing “The company’s waste-to-energy approach reflects a broad movement in the U.S. to get value from waste, rather than expensively transporting it to municipal dumps.” The announcement resonated far beyond the Wall Street Journal, leading to digital and print pieces in GigaOM, GreenTechMedia, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, and Dow Jones.
Throughout the summer we stimulated the airwaves with “Organic Connections,” a video series featuring food waste expert Jonathan Bloom, EPA veteran Carol Browner, biogas guru David House, clean energy policy extraordinaire Ian Bowles, soil expert Jeff Moyer, agriculture entrepreneur Pat Ricchiuti, and organic pioneer Eliot Coleman.
Our CEO, Paul Sellew, continues to lead the conversation with deep insights into issues ranging from renewable energy to soil revitalization. Interviews with Paul led to widespread coverage for Harvest in The New York Times, The Boston Business Journal, Xconomy, The Boston Herald and other media mainstream business media.
Finally, Harvest led industry media through strategically placed contributed articles: Wayne Davis, a Harvest co-founder, published bylines in both Environmental Leader and Renewable Energy World, while Meredith Sorensen, Harvest’s marketing manager, contributed a two-part article packed with puns for Renewable Energy World entitled “Integrating Anaerobic Digestion Into Our Culture.”
Recently winning the “Continued Excellence” award for being named to the Global Cleantech 100 list for the last 3 years, Harvest’s momentum continues. Here’s to keeping it going into 2013!
