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 includes multiple weeks of targeted virtual training and follow-up training throughout the year to help young companies build connections and grow capacity.

BREW 2.0 is sponsored by Beckhoff Automation, based in Germany with U.S. headquarters in Minnesota, and Thales Water Advisors of Los Angeles.
