Via Juan Bisquert’s post: solar cell company Konarka filed for bankrupty yesterday according to Businessweek. It is always hard to be the first… Konarka received its first venture capital in mid 2001.
Howard Berke, CEO of Konarka:
This is a tragedy for Konarka’s shareholders and employees and for the development of alternative energy in the U.S.
Let’s hope that our friends from Konarka find other suitable positions, and that other companies such as Heliatek take up the lead!
