On November 17 at the MIT Media Lab (E14) from 6 pm to 9 pm, participants in the inaugural MIT Water Innovation Prize (WIP) competition will pitch water-related ideas, find others interested in forming teams, and learn about exciting water innovations at MIT and the surrounding area. Stephanie Moore, a Sloan School graduate student and one of the organizers, said, “The WIP is a solutions-to-market competition for water startups that are related to all types of water issues including treatment, contamination, conservation, processes, technologies, research and development.” Teams will submit their entries for the prize in late December and compete for seed funding in the spring.
