Project FROG, a San Francisco-based start-up, announced in November that it closed $8 million in Series B financing, led by RockPort Capital Partners. Chuck McDermott, a General Partner at RockPort, has also joined Project FROG’s Board of Directors.
Project FROG (Flexible Response to Ongoing Growth) was founded in 2006 and is focusing on designing and manufacturing "smart buildings" — high-performance, green building systems that are healthy, quick to deploy, affordable, sustainable, and permanent. Among its products is FROG Zero(TM), which the company states is the world’s first - and only - zero-energy building system. Project FROG introduced FROG Zero at the recent Greenbuild conference in Boston.
“RockPort has a very impressive track record and we are excited to have them join the FROG team,” said founder and CEO Mark Miller. “Their vision for energy and resource efficiency and innovative products is perfectly aligned with the Project FROG approach – to be better, greener, faster and cheaper – in that order.”
Chuck McDermott said, “This is a truly pioneering company. Project FROG is developing dynamic concepts from a product design and manufacturing platform and applying those innovations to the building industry. Project FROG has a critical grasp on the technical and market advancements that will be game changers in the green building industry. These attributes solidify Project FROG’s position as a leader in this fast growing marketplace."
