A matchmaking forum for sustainable development
The role of private sector in providing innovative solutions to the water sector in Kenya and Eastern African Region
Innovate 4 Water is being held on April 26-27 in Nairobi, Kenya. The event brings together various water & sanitation stakeholders (entrepreneurs, investors, large and small companies, non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, incubators) who are contributing to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 6.
The objectives of the events are to:
- Create visibility for entrepreneurs in the water sector in order to enable them to reach impact investors;
- Promote the transfer of innovative water technologies and innovative business models in emerging markets and developing countries;
- Facilitate connections to catalyse collaborations.
The event is being organized by Waterpreneurs, a Geneva-based NGO that works on a dialogue and provides multi-stakeholder solutions (private, public, civil society, etc.) around issues of human rights, security and peace in the world, through the development of entrepreneurs to provide basic services to the most vulnerable populations, in particular through access to drinking water.
