“We understand that our time is valuable, and we don’t really apply to accelerators anymore. The BREW goes so far beyond that. It really helps you with market penetration and understanding the landscape.”
Jon Grant, Chief Commercial Officer at Sentry
As a late-stage water tech innovator, you’ve laid the groundwork: You have the idea, you’ve done the research and development, you’ve launched a product and you’re ready for the market.
Now, you’re ready for BREW 2.0. The Business, Research and Entrepreneurship in Water (BREW) Accelerator 2.0 is a next-stage post-accelerator created to help young companies build connections and grow their company’s capacity. This virtual and in-person hybrid program focuses on expert-led sales and growth training tailored for water tech businesses. Afterward, participants have access to ongoing training opportunities to continue their growth trajectory. Participation is free other than travel expenses.
Application for BREW 2.0 2023 is now closed. Watch for an announcement of the 2023 cohort soon, and check back in fall to apply for the 2024 cohort. Contact Karen Frost with any questions in the meantime.
