Innovate 4 Water: A matchmaking forum for sustainable development

From June 08, 2017 09:00 until June 09, 2017 18:00 Save to calendar

At Geneva

 ◊   Co-convenors: WIPO GREEN, WaterVent and Waterpreneurs


The United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization’s “WIPO GREEN: The Marketplace for Sustainable Technology” will host this event that will bring together various water stakeholders over the course of three days (entrepreneurs, investors, large and small companies, non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, incubators) that are contributing to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6.


The objectives of the event are to:

  • Create visibility for entrepreneurs in the water sector in order to enable them to reach investors;
  • Promote the transfer of innovative water technologies and innovative business models in emerging markets and developing countries;
  • Foster interactions between various water stakeholders and raise awareness about water issues.


The first two days will be dedicated to entrepreneurs and investors.

These matching days are designed to bring water technology (and those related in the water nexus) entrepreneurs and investors together in an exclusive, non-conference, one-on-one setting in order to accelerate growth by providing support in attracting (first) clients, assess business opportunities and facilitate financing in the water sector.

The Open forum on the last day will feature speakers from the WIPO GREEN Network and key individuals working in the water sector, impact investing, social entrepreneurship and other UN agencies.
