“2nd place couldn’t feel any better”

This was the subject line of an email from CEO Marian Singer, sent to Team Wellntel — investors, friends and partners — after it was announced that Wellntel is a runner up in Imagine H20’s Global Water Technology Competition. Here is what else she had to say:

Good evening –

Nick and I are proud to report that – drum roll, please – Wellntel was announced as one of two runners up in the Early Growth Track of the Imagine H20 Competition! As a quick reminder, the field of competition started with more than 70 companies and was whittled down to 12 finalists – 6 in the Early Growth Track and 6 in the Growth Stage Track. We’re in a terrific cohort of winners in the Early Growth Track – our fellow runner up is WatrHub (http://www.watrhub.com) from Toronto and the winner of our track is TerrAvion (http://www.terravion.com) of Livermore, CA.

We received meaningful prize money, some valuable in-kind services and a bunch of exposure with potential investors, customers and an interview with CNN.com and a reporter who writes for NYTimes and Salon.com. We’ll proudly join the Imagine H20 portfolio, and be featured at upcoming water events and international trade shows. Couldn’t ask for a better 2 days.

Thank you for all your support – we couldn’t do this without you

– Marian.
