Scale Up Milwaukee and The Water Council were pleased to host Flemming Bomholt Møller, Senior Technical Advisor for the Danish Water Technology Alliance in Chicago, and Søren Boutrup, Chief Consultant on Entrepreneurship at the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth, on February 25th, 2016 for an introduction to Scale Up Milwaukee, The Water Council and the Global Water Center.
Scale Up Milwaukee will host Boutrup in Milwaukee through early March, while he works as an external consultant to study the entrepreneurial ecosystems in southeastern Wisconsin. Boutrup’s extended visit presented a prime opportunity to reach out to the Danish Water Technology Alliance in Chicago to make a joint introduction of The Water Council and the Global Water Center. Møller shared the role and purpose of the Danish Water Technology Alliance’s work in the region and their specific involvement with Danish water technology companies in the wastewater treatment industry. The group discussed potential future opportunities for collaboration, noting the close proximity of the Danish group to the nation’s leading water technology cluster.
