This year's challenge focuses on the problems and opportunities for the global water industry:

While the global population continues to grow, access to fresh water has become increasingly scarce. How can we use water resource management and sustainability to maintain the lives and industries of communities around the world?

By participating in the Challenge you will be able to:

  • showcase your entrepreneurial skills to industry
  • build your networks
  • strengthen your entrepreneurial skills
  • address a real problem worth solving; and
  • have the chance to win a cash prize!
