Imagine H2O has selected the next group of outstanding water companies for the 2019 Accelerator. This tenth annual cycle attracted 255 startup applicants, of which 165 received invitations to apply in full. An independent panel of 30 judges selected 13 high-potential companies from 5 countries to enter Imagine H2O’s Accelerator.
The Imagine H2O Accelerator supports entrepreneurs in building sustainable solutions to water resource management. The remote, zero equity program primes entrepreneurs to create scalable impact in the water sector through mentorship, industry insight, visibility, and direct customer and investor introductions.
Since 2009, the organization has supported over a hundred organizations, with current and alumni Imagine H2O companies raising over $150m in 2018. There were also two company exits, including the sale of Imagine H2O 2015 Winner Valor Water Analytics to Xylem.
