INNOVATE 4 WATER – A MATCHMAKING FORUM FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

UBERIS Capital will participate at ‘Innovate 4 Water’, a global forum on water held in Geneva from June 7th, to June 9th 2017. UBERIS Capital Founder and Managing Director Cyrille Antignac will participate in the panel on Hybrid Financing Solutions along with Kishan Nanavati (CEO of Spring Health Water India), Olivier Richards (Policy and Innovation Analyst at the Carbon Trust), Nicolas Schmitt (Business Development Manager at Danone Communities), Nat Paynter (Vice President at Safe Water Network, VP – Strategic Partnerships) and Gerdien Seegers (Business Developer at Smart Water Solutions).

 

Co-organised by United Nations WIPO Green, WaterVent and Waterpreneur, the event focuses on water & sanitation, entrepreneurship and sustainable investment. The forum brings together a vast set of expert stakeholders spanning across entrepreneurship, investment, SMEs, non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, incubators, development agencies and academics. Together, and over the course of three days, the various stakeholders will explore how a combination of innovative technologies, entrepreneurship and investment can contribute to achieving the 6th United Nations Sustainable Development Goal to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”, particularly in emerging markets.
