EMAGIN Clean Technologies Inc. is proud to announce that it has been selected, from a global competitive field of over 180 companies across 18 countries, as one of the top 12 digital water start-ups worldwide, and has been invited to join the ImagineH2O (IH2O) 2017 Data Challenge Accelerator.
IH2O’s accelerator participants represent 1 in every 10 dollars of early-stage investment in the water industry. IH2O’s global innovation ecosystem includes leading utilities, corporations, investors, academic institutions and associations – such as GE Power and Water, Tetratech, American Water, Nestle and NALCO Water. As a cohort participant, EMAGIN will receive primary access to this prestigious global network.
Each year, IH2O attracts an extraordinary field of startups tackling the global water challenge who benefit from accessing the organization’s connections in the water industry and Silicon Valley. In 2016 alone, IH2O’s cohort collectively raised over $27 million from investors and secured notable customer opportunities within IH2O Beta Partners network. Companies such as WatrHub, WaterSmart Software, and Valor Analytics have all participated in past IH2O’s cohorts.
EMAGIN will also be presenting at IH2O’s annual Water Gala and the WEF Innovation Conference in San Francisco from March 15-16. We will also be showcasing our technology in IH2O Innovation Pavilions at AWWA’s Annual Conference & Exhibition 2017 (Philadelphia) on June 11-14; WEFTEC (Chicago) on Sept. 30 – Oct. 4, and Watersmart Innovations (Las Vegas) on Oct. 4-6.

In doing so, utilities are able to save on energy and resource costs while minimizing risk.
