Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Challenge Seeks Innovative Scalable Solutions

imagine-h20-infrastructureThe latest Business Innovations initiative from Imagine H20 is seeking innovative and scalable solutions, which can bring about “quantifiable cost savings” or environmental impacts, to water and wastewater infrastructure issues.

Instead of looking at point-of-use or consumer innovations for water and wastewater concerns, the Infrastructure Challenge, which begins on October 1st, is a “path to market” program for both emerging and growth-stage water businesses.

Startups and existing businesses can compete for both cash and in-kind services, as well as admission into Imagine H20’s Accelerator Program, which includes mentorships from experts and introductions to strategic partners and investors.

“Systematic failure related to extreme weather patterns and growing population place more stress on global water infrastructure and supply. Deteriorating and nonexistent water infrastructure is a concern to populations all across the world, and catalyzing and supporting entrepreneurial water solutions is an essential step toward building a secure water future and more resilient infrastructure.” – Scott Bryan, Imagine H2O COO
