Water Council receives Regional Innovation Cluster designation from U.S. Small Business Administration

BIZTIMES.COM. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has selected The Water Council as one of four regional industry innovation clusters to receive new federal funding to fuel growth. These cluster initiatives focus on the most effective approaches to linking small businesses to regional networks of leading research, commercialization tools and financing.

The Water Council will focus on the creation of a Center of Excellence (CoE) for Freshwater Innovation and Small Business Development. The CoE will promote the growth and development of small businesses operating in the water technology sector, initially in the Midwest and then expanding across the United States. The development of the CoE will elevate The Water Council’s role as a global water leader.
