WaterStart helps watertech companies to scale up from Queensland to Nevada

Advanced water disinfection technology, contract risk mitigation software and predictive flood mapping – these are the three innovative solutions taking a leap from Australia to the United States in the Water-Tech Connection Exchange Program. 

Welcome to the program participants of 2019:

It will be a busy week ahead for Elena Gosse, CEO of AIS, Megan Avard, Founder and CEO of SurePact, and Juliette Murphy, Co-Founder and CEO of Floodmapp. They will be flying to Las Vegas, Nevada to participate in WaterStart’s industry exclusive Channels for Innovation Summit and a water treatment facility tour. The program will allow our innovators to meet with major water agencies and users from WaterStart’s global network, showcase their innovative technology, and develop opportunities to scale their solutions into the US.

“There were a number of exciting technology solutions we evaluated during the application process,” said Kevin Fisher, Chief Technology Advisor of WaterStart. “Queensland has developed a strong ecosystem for startups to get the resources and mentorship needed to commercialize, secure funding and grow their business. We could see a strong mix of established businesses as well as products in a growth phase. This shows a great future ahead for innovation companies to engineer the solutions we need in the water industry to safeguard this precious resource.”

The three companies have already been making a splash in Australia, pushing the boundaries of their respective markets to deliver innovative and cost-effective solutions. 

This initiative from WaterStart puts Queensland technology companies on the global stage and fuels opportunity for economic development in the water sector of both regions.
