The 8th edition of the European WaterCampus Business Challenge (EWCBC) will take place in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands, from 13 – 17 March. For the 2017 edition we will again invite startups from all over Europe to create a big rub off effect and create win-win situations for all.

The challenge enables you to meet peers, to talk with innovative corporations and get to pitch to serious investors. In past editions this has resulted in great success stories.

Almost all companies from the previous 7 editions are still successfully active in the water business.

Talented entrepreneurs
Within the program we unite the forces of (young) entrepreneurs, coaches, investors and innovative corporations to turn new developed technologies into a (commercial) success.

The EWCBC is an excellent 5 day training for talented entrepreneurs where they learn how to build good innovative technologies and services into a successful international business.

On the last day the participants will present their business plan to a jury of water technology experts and investors.

Candidates are selected on the basis of their innovation potential, contribution to sustainability and market readiness. Selected candidates are positioned to become the global front-runner in their field.

Unique research programme
The challenge is organised by Wetsus, the European centre of excellence for sustainable water technology.

Wetsus created a worldwide unique environment and strategic cooperation for development of profitable and sustainable state of the art water technology.

With Wetsus new water technologies are developed in a unique way. Both universities (22) and private companies (>105) contribute to the research program. The companies define the research programme, which is executed by the universities in the Wetsus laboratory.

So far Wetsus has generated over 80 patents and more than 25 startups in the field of water technology.
