About The Event

Water is ubiquitous; we need it to drink, bathe, produce energy, swim, fish, cool, heat, circulate, provide habitat, and the list goes on. Water has historically been mis-managed and water supplies are increasingly polluted, scarce, or unreliable. Additionally, new pressures exist such as climate change, population growth, and emerging industries with unique water demands. Come join us to hear from three folks working in the water tech world who are disrupting the way we treat, use, and care for our precious water. This panel event is for anyone who wants to learn more about what it is like to work in the tech and startup space in Calgary, what challenges and opportunities are faced in water tech, and how we can collectively move the needle forward to address water issues. 

We are excited to welcome our panel speakers:
