Aqua Entrepreneur

A unique acceleration program that helps companies specializing in water technologies in the municipal market.

About the Program

AQUAENTREPRENEUR is an accelerator program issued by AquaAction that helps companies specializing in water technologies bring their innovative solutions to the municipal market through pilot projects that have a potential large-scale impact.

Some technologically innovative freshwater solutions created by emerging companies need to be tested and validated in the field before being fully deployed. This is where AquaEntrepreneur comes in.
