Milwaukee’s Water Council is welcoming the latest group of water tech-focused startups to its BREW Accelerator program.

“From a gel filtering technology to giant bubbles, we are eager to get to work with this new batch of startups,” said Dean Amhaus, president and CEO of The Water Council.

Every year, companies participating in the seed accelerator program get access to a host of benefits that can mean the difference between failure and success. They each receive up to a $50,000 equity investment, work space in the Global Water Center in Milwaukee and training through the UW-Whitewater Institute for Water Business.

On top of this assistance, they also get access to the Water Council’s global network, through which they can connect to world leaders in water stewardship and big-name companies.

The council’s global member directory includes companies like Rockwell Automation, Johnson Controls, Findorff, Michael Best, Baird, MillerCoors and many more.

Five companies will be taking part this time around in what will be the fifth installment of the program. Two hail from outside the United States, while the other three are based in Wisconsin. Read the full story here.
