The Business, Research and Entrepreneurship in Water (BREW) 2.0 is a next-stage post-accelerator created to help young companies build connections and grow their company’s capacity.

Evove (formerly G2O Water Technologies) is aiming to grow and scale-up its US business prospects in the food & beverage sector, industrial and municipal water reuse and high-tech industries like lithium, semiconductors and green hydrogen.

The Water Council has successfully galvanized business prospects for water technology companies like ours and Evove is thrilled and honoured to have been accepted onto BREW,” says Evove chief marketing officer Andrew Walker. “From this mature platform, we will be seeking new partnerships, business potential and piloting opportunities with our precision filtration and separation technologies.”

This is the second year for The Water Council’s BREW 2.0, which focuses on late-stage water technology startups ready to enter the market or with early sales. The program, which officially starts online on 18 April, includes multiple weeks of targeted virtual training and follow-up training throughout the year to help young companies build connections and grow capacity. The companies will present their innovations at a virtual pitch event for water industry professionals and investors on 23 June.

“This is an incredibly vibrant and international cohort and we are delighted to have Evove on board,” says Dean Amhaus, president & CEO of The Water Council. “The selection committee saw great potential in the products they are bringing to the market, with the promise of significantly enhancing the performance of membranes which are key in filtration and separation.”

BREW 2.0 is sponsored by Beckhoff Automation, based in Germany with US headquarters in Minnesota, and Thales Water Advisors of Los Angeles. Thales will provide expertise and thought leadership for BREW 2.0 participants, particularly in the areas of go-to-market strategy and scaling up.
