Entrepreneurs are very important to Hamilton’s economy. Our community has a very strong business incubator called The Hamilton Mill that helps startup companies find the resources they need to grow. In 2016, The Hamilton Mill launched the Pipeline H20 program which is focused on solving the world’s most challenging water issues by identifying and supporting the world’s best water technology concepts. While Pipeline H20 is a collaboration between many local, regional, and national partners, The Hamilton Mill was chosen to lead the effort because of its reputation as a city-as-a-lab incubator and because of Hamilton’s exceptional water.
In Pipeline H20’s inaugural season, 66 startups applied from 14 different countries. Six companies were selected for the first class and two winners will be announced at the May 18th Demo Day. The two winning concepts will receive $25,000. Interested in attending Demo Day? Register here.
