Inaugural MIT Water Innovation Prize Hosted Final Pitches
On April 6, the MIT Water Club hosted the final pitches for Water Innovation Prize — an opportunity for MIT students to work in tandem with real-world mentors on water startups and ventures. Over the course of four months, seven MIT-based teams prepared their enterprises for the chance to win $20,000 in innovation grants. “The mission of the MIT Water Club and Water Innovation Prize is to support the MIT community developing their understanding of global water challenges, to act as a hub for interaction among likeminded people and to learn about current, cutting-edge research in the water sector,” said MIT Water Club co-president and CEE graduate student Neha Mehta. The prize, co-sponsored by and initiated through seed funding from CEE, launched in the fall semester with an “Idea Pitch and Generator Dinner”. For the full story, please see here.
