VIA Water innovators invited for GES

Great chance to meet investors


We will be hard to miss at the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in The Hague. So far, VIA Water innovators in seven of our projects will participate.

On 3-5 June 2019, the United States and the Netherlands will co-host the 9th Global Entrepreneurship Summit in The Hague. An international platform where innovators can present their innovative solutions to all sorts of investors: from early-stage venture capitals to private equity firms, family offices, and pension funds.

Being present at the GES as an entrepreneur is only possible on an invitational basis. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and NWP requested us for suitable candidates. With good result: seven VIA Water innovators will present their innovation.

Our innovative entrepreneurs had to meet several criteria, amongst others having a ground-breaking, transformative solution for sectors like agri/food, water, energy and health. Also, their innovation should be more than just a concept, it should have a functioning, market-ready business model.

We have to admit that we are a little bit proud that so many of the VIA Water innovators have been selected. We wish them good luck and cross fingers for a successful summit with promising outcomes for the future.
