Water use has been growing at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century, and water withdrawals are predicted to increase 50% by 2025 in developing countries and 18% in developed countries. The need for global water innovation is more critical than ever. New government policies and existing process improvements aren’t enough to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand. This challenge presents an opportunity for both entrepreneurs and investors, but investment capital and deal velocity threaten to inhibit growth in the sector. Laura Shenkar will explore venture capital funding in the water start-up sector and will identify the critical factors for success in the future. Case studies from around the world as well as domestic examples will be presented. With the largest state-based cleantech association in the country, is there an opportunity for Washington to emerge as a “Water Leader” and create new jobs and economic opportunities for our region? Join us on Tuesday, September 11th to learn more about this game-changing industry and the future of water on our planet.

Laura Shenkar is the founder and principal at Artemis Water Strategy in San Francisco. She is one of the leading experts on advanced water technology and its potential for business operations. With over a decade of business experience outside of the U.S., Ms. Shenkar works with water companies to support their business development and innovation strategies, governments to build their water tech industries, and water tech start-ups to launch their go-to-market strategy.
