TeamSolve selected for Imagine H2O Asia Cohort 4

Thirteen companies will participate in the Singapore-based water accelerator and market access program to tackle the region’s water and wastewater challenges.

Singapore – November 9, 2022 – The pressures facing many communities on the frontlines of the global water and climate crisis across Asia are spurring bold, new commitments to accelerate the uptake of innovation. India has committed to meeting 20 per cent of overall water demand in cities through wastewater reuse.

Singapore is operating one of the world’s first 100 per cent green waterworks systems using floating solar farms. Indonesia is rolling out its first digital flood management system in Jakarta this year.

In response to these incentives and opportunities, the quality and diversity of innovators committed to solving the region’s water challenges is increasing. Imagine H2O Asia Cohort 4 was no exception. Over 100 applicants, two-thirds of which are based in Asia, applied to the Singapore-based accelerator and market access program.

Several second or third-time water startup founders joined an equal number of founders who were entering the water sector for the first time. As the spotlight turns to COP27, more water entrepreneurs than ever before referred to themselves as a climate startup.

Spanning six different countries – from Spain to the Philippines to Timor Leste – the 13 companies selected for Cohort 4 this year are tackling a range of shared challenges across Asia-Pacific including flood prediction, septic tank cleaning, wastewater treatment process efficiency and more.

Participating companies will benefit from startup development, market access, and an expanded pool of pilot funding resources over the next twelve months. In addition, as a lifecycle partner, all Cohort 4 companies will then join a growing alumni network of 175 startups which continue to receive support from Imagine H2O to help deploy and scale their solutions.

Led by Imagine H2O, Imagine H2O Asia is supported by Founding Partner Enterprise Singapore as well as Veolia, Xylem, Kurita, Kubota, PUB, SWA, World Bank and ADB.
