VC Corner – Meet our investors

When we first started on our crusade to revitalize American manufacturing – improving efficiency, cutting wasteful spending, and creating jobs – Acorn Innovestmentshad our back. Their encouragement has played a huge role in our success and continued growth. It doesn’t hurt that they are invested in green technologies for the long haul either.In addition to their support for SIS, Acorn has backed several other successful eco-ventures and manufacturing oriented businesses including:

PlotWatt – A 2011 GE Ecomagination Challenge winner, PlotWatt’s technology helping people reduce their energy bills by providing customized money-saving recommendations based on smart-meter data.

GreenSky Wind Systems – A NC-based manufacturer and provider of silent small wind turbines, GreenSky provides energy solutions straight out of a Jetsons commercial; their elegant, powerful turbines are engineered for silent, vibration-free operation.

School House – A socially conscious, collegiate fashion brand, School House is dedicated    to its ‘living wage manufacturing mission’ expanding US fashion manufacturing jobs in NC and beyond.

Raleigh is raising the manufacturing roof

‘More than half of the nation’s major markets are experiencing an upswing in manufacturing activity….’ – Triangle Business Journal

At SIS we are doing our part to help the NC manufacturing eco-system, helping companies like Nomaco upgrade their facilities and reduce their operating costs. Looks like we chose a strong market…‘[Cont.] Raleigh is one of the cities to see an increase, adding 200 more manufacturing jobs in 2011 than in the previous year.’
