SAFEWATER Translate has made it to the final of INVENT 2021, Northern Ireland’s most exciting and challenging competition for entrepreneurial early-stage businesses.
Organised by science and technology hub Catalyst with headline partner Bank of Ireland, INVENT is an annual celebration of the brightest new business ideas in the region, which supports, showcases and rewards the local innovations and proof of concept ideas that have the greatest commercial potential.
The SAFEWATER Technologies team presented live to a panel of seasoned judges in May and June, and the proposed entity, SAFEWATER Technologies, was shortlisted as one of ten start-ups from five different categories. These categories reflect global trends and help to capture great ideas from across the full spectrum of innovation in Northern Ireland, while also aligning with the clusters Catalyst believes will drive the local economy in future.
The Team will work with mentors and advisors over the summer and present their final pitches at the end of August. The final will take place on 30 September 2021.
