Ten emerging water-tech companies were selected to pitch their solutions at the World Water-Tech North America summit in Toronto in November. The hosts welcomed 250 municipalities, private utilities, corporate investors, engineering giants and technology companies. Each year, the summit invites 10 of the most innovative technology companies to pitch over the course of two days. Showcasing their ground-breaking solutions to an audience of investors, partners and customers, the presenters were put through their paces by a panel of judges who dished out expert advice and feedback. The technology showcase sessions act as a launch pad for growth and investment with previous companies.
