We invest in young talents and unlock their potential to create and scale WASH startups by providing them the necessary tools and financial means to become successful and impactful entrepreneurs.
Since 2017, our Young Water Fellowship programmes support youth in low-and middle income countries with 4 enabling components: WASH business trainings; funding; coaching and connections to the enabling ecosystem, in each step of their entrepreneurial journey: ideation, incubation, pre-acceleration and acceleration.
