Start-Up Pitching

This is a great opportunity for selected early to mid-stage innovators to showcase their game-changing technology solution to our audience of international leaders, technology integrators and VC investors in the water sector.

Each company presents a snapshot of their solution, highlighting the most innovative aspects of their technology and business model, and outlining their go-to-market strategy. They then take questions from our panel of investor “sharks” and from our audience.

Start-Up Exhibition


The Start-Up Exhibition gives innovators the opportunity to have a dedicated, branded presence in the networking area for the duration of the event, highly visible and ideal for meetings.

Founders generate new connections among investors and the global water industry, and are positioned as key innovators in the sector.
