IWA-Isle Innovation Hub Sri Lanka 2018 - access to network and market

Partnerships are key to Innovate to solve water issue was a statement made by many stakeholders at the IWA Water and Development Congress in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Not for nothing WaterSpark alliance partner, Isle Utilities was invited to facilitate the IWA-Isle Innovation Hub on the exhibition floor and to be a judge in the Innovators Workshop at the conference. In both cases, the moderation was done by Isle’s UK Managing Director Ben Tam, and in both sessions, companies were allowed to present innovations that were aligned with solving the challenges of SDG6. An expert panel from organizations TU Delft, WaterAid, ENPHO, WRC, GSMA and PureTerra Ventures provided valuable feedback on to the disruptive technologies presented during the innovation sessions.

During the Innovation sessions, The WaterSpark initiative was presented to an audience for the first time by Executive Director Annelies Schenk. 

The IWA-Isle Innovation hub was powered by PureTerra Ventures & WaterSpark, because we believe the IWA Water & Development congress enables innovations in Sri Lanka to increase their network and knowledge and catalyze! 

Thank you to the tech presenters at the Innovation Hub: Borda, CityTaps, Primus Line, Purac AB and Susabanda Consultancy. Also congrats to the winner of the Innovators Workshop, Blue Toilet presented by Siddhant Gupta.
