The actual crisis makes us aware (again) of the relevance of water infrastucture. Running 10 years of WaterVent we acquainted with thousands of innovators in the sector –
b2b and b2c.

Registration Zoom Session December 15th

WaterVent can be perceived as a Corporate Venturing Forum in the water tech nexus. Water technology innovators have to cope with two main challenges:

  • I. funding (by VC, corporates, charities & foundations, Family Offices, private individuals, public grants & loans)
  • II. detecting and convincing (first) Clients (application references!) - industrial corporates, farmers, real estate owners and utilities which are open minded (courageous?) to give new and - often - disruptive technologies a trial

WaterVent is a platform dedicated to matching innovators and these two groups by showcasting water technology innovations to those who are in need of and/or who want to engage in.
