Cimico selected for The Water Council’s BREW 2.0
Cimico has been selected to participate in BREW 2.0 post-accelerator from The Water Council.
This is the third year for The Water Council’s BREW 2.0 (Business, Research and Entrepreneurship in Water -BREW), a program which focuses on late-stage water technology startups ready to enter the market or with early sales. The program includes two weeks of targeted virtual training followed by an in-person week in Milwaukee with programming, a public pitch event and investor networking, focused on expert-led growth and sales training.
The program is organized by The Water Council (TWC), a global hub dedicated to solving critical water challenges by driving innovation in freshwater technology and advancing water stewardship. TWC has coalesced one of the most concentrated and mature water technology clusters in the world from its headquarters at the Global Water Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Today, The Water Council has established itself as a global leader in the water industry and one of America’s premier economic development clusters as recognized by government agencies, Brookings and the Harvard Business School.
The Water Council has various sponsors, including Beckhoff Automation, Thales Water Advisors and the recetly joined Xylem. In addition to providing financial support for BREW 2.0, Xylem will help review applications, lead a BREW training session and participate in the program’s annual Demo Day. “Innovation and technology are critical to solving urgent water challenges,” said Sivan Zamir, Vice President of Xylem Innovation Labs. “We are proud to be a part of this program offering tactical and practical training to innovators across the globe.”
