Global Business Plan Competition in Water Technologies (and related)

2016-06-07

In cooperation with the Berlin Watertech Trade Fair "Wasser Berlin" the First Global Water Technologies Business Plan Competition is launched.

In February 2010 unique Water Technology Funding Forum WaterVent was initiated. Since then it has received thousands of enquiries and registrations on a global scale.

Many incubators, clusters and water related start-up competitions were incepted. All of them were regional or national. Water security is a global challenge. Based on broad experience and network Leonhard Ventures together with Wasser Berlin has initiated the first ever Global Business Plan Competition in Water Technologies (and related).

Please send your application here. Deadline is October 31st. First selection will be done by Leonhard Ventures. Second evaluation will be done by our jury until december 18th. Leads to invitation to present personally to Jury Members in March 2017. During Wasser Berlin Trade Fair the Final Winners will be announced in Gala.

Based on experience in innovative ("new") water technologies focus in evaluation is put on market and clients access which is particularly challenging for water technology innovators. They often simply substitute (threaten) existing technologies and are therefore not always "welcome".

Addtionally there are still water issues which are not yet solved i.e. neglected water problems.

Note: we do expressively welcome adjacent technologies from the water nexus also, i.e.

  • (smart) agriculture
  • Urban and vertical farming
  • Aquaponics
  • Blue and green biotech
  • Algae
  • Aquaculture

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

Our, robot constructors, friendship with KSTP started a few years ago. The strangest thing is that it was not me who found them, but they found me. Together we organised sumo robot challenge, which attracted the interest of many - people were coming to us and asking how from the ‘plain field' did so many robot constructors appear in Klaipėda? The Park provided us with the possibility to bring our engineering solutions out into the daylight, which receive more and more attention from the youth. Currently, we, thanks to the Park, are known not only in Lithuania, but also in the whole world.

We are on the move and we are glad that our work is valued, there is no need to prove to anybody that in global modern space only those may remain who bravely implement innovative ideas, apply them in business. It is important for us that our Park community would strengthen and we all would gradually grow, the geography of our activities would broaden, while enterprises were happy by that what we can provide ... I would like to thank everyone who was with us for ten years by the words of French philosopher Blaise Pascal: ‘The past and present are our means: the future alone is our goal..."
