The Water Council is accepting applications for our BREW 2.0 Post-Accelerator program through Jan. 6. Click here for more information about our innovation programs.

BREW 2.0 is a next-stage post-accelerator program created to help young freshwater technology or resiliency-focused companies build connections and grow their company’s capacity. This virtual and in-person hybrid program focuses on expert-led sales and growth training, panel sessions and matchmaking tailored especially for water tech businesses. Up to 10 companies are selected annually for this program.

Ideal participants have already successfully participated in one or more accelerator programs, are market-ready or in-market with early sales and are ready to grow. The program focuses on businesses with products and components related to water quality and quantity, including water and wastewater, agriculture, watershed management, hydropower, sensors, data management and other software solutions.

The program is hybrid — virtual and in-person. Participation is free other than travel expenses for the final program week for the Pitch/Investor Day. Program dates are as follows: April 17-21 (virtual), May 22-26 (virtual) and June 21-23 (in-person in Milwaukee, WI, USA).
