This marketplace is designed for the Nigerian setting, showcasing states utilities, corporations, ministries, entrepreneurs, investors and NGOs.

 

The success and impact of the "Innovate 4 Water" marketplaces are characterised by a strong reinforcement of the local ecosystem around WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) entrepreneurship; new business partnerships between entrepreneurs, investors, utilities and enablers; the transfer of innovative water technologies and innovative business models; and cross sectorial collaboration.

 

The format is based on ALL participants being active, through a series of short pitches where they have the opportunity to present their activities in order to gain visibility with other stakeholders of the sector and increase collaboration and business opportunities. To do so, we provide the opportunity to all participants (entrepreneurs, investors, enablers) to:
