Out of 238 total applicants 54 companies were chosen to move forward to Phase 3. The top dozen contestants will give live presentations at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison during the annual Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference in June.

This year’s advancing companies include:
pHinding Solutions, Milwaukee
Hydro-lite, Milwaukee

The Water Council wishes these companies the best of luck and success in their coming ventures.
