Imagine H2O and the Colorado Water Innovation Cluster (CWIC) are partnering to provide entrepreneurs with opportunities, tools and resources to build successful water businesses. This agreement facilitates access to one another’s resources.
Imagine H2O is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire and empower people to turn water challenges into opportunities. It is recognized as a global ecosystem and path-to-market for water entrepreneurs. "This agreement creates new opportunities for Colorado water innovators” said Jeff Throckmorton, Chairman of the Colorado Water Innovation Cluster, "and partnerships with organizations like Imagine H2O will fuel innovation, collaboration and growth throughout the region.”
Competition Accelerates Innovation
Both programs provide support and mentoring to entrepreneurs and businesses that are advancing water innovation. Imagine H2O’s annual business plan competition attracts a global field of entrepreneurs and features a judging panel of leading water experts. The winning companies enter Imagine H2O’s Accelerator Program where they receive professional resources and market insight.
