About Aqua Entrepreneur Québec
With the support of the Quebec government and in partnership with IVÉO, AquaAction offers a one-of-a-kind acceleration program for water technology companies.
The companies selected will be accompanied through a process of a few months to facilitate their access to the municipal market from a business point of view.
