Ulf and Gabriele Leonhard, WaterVent

Incepted in February 2010 in Berlin, WaterVent (acronym of Water and Venture) is enjoying a steadily increasing brand awareness. Though we notice hundreds of congresses and trade fairs dealing with water issues and sub-jects organized globally, WaterVent was and is still the only international water technologies (and related nexus) focused forum: minimum 60% of presentations done are setup by water technology entrepreneurs and innovators looking for funding and/or clients (users,applications)!Thirteen forums in US, Europe and UAE (contract forum RAK on behalf of Utico) with appr. 2,250 attendees.

WaterVent differentiates its offering by:

  • covering all stages –
    unversity spinoff, seed to series B and C funding
  • welcoming adjacent sectors (blue biotech, aquaculture, roof gardening, urban farming…..)
  • matchmaking of innovators, investors and potential users
  • rendering a global visibility to all relevant water tech experts, investors, corporates, incubators, clusters, foundations
