S.Africa: Water Resilience Competition opens doors to local innovators

Cape Town-based special purpose vehicle GreenCape, in partnership with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF), is running a water-saving competition with efforts to support local innovators.

The Innovations for Water Resilience Competition event has been developed in response to the wave of water innovations that have emerged during the Western Cape’s water crisis period.

The competition calls all innovators, start-ups, and businesses to pitch their water innovations or products to a panel of judges as part of a ‘Shark Tank-style’ pitching competition and networking event.

As part of the journey towards water resilience, FNF and GreenCape are offering their support to innovators and entrepreneurs in the water innovations landscape.

The winner of the Innovations for Water Resilience Competition will be awarded R20,000 worth of business support. The competition entry closing date will be on 14 September 2018.
