cewas - international centre for water management services
Willisau
Switzerland


Despite the increasing demand, the water sector is facing today a lack of innovative small- and middle-scale businesses that offer products in the field of sustainable sanitation and water management services. cewas is the institutional answer to this situation. Organised in four business domains (Start-Up Centre, Think-Tank, Training Centre, Business Platform), it aims at strengthening the implementation skills in the sector on an international level in a unique training programme combining advanced education and coaching. The international Start-Up teams will be able to offer solutions based on a good knowledge of regional markets and conditions but also a wider range of contacts to research and development in the North and the South. Each Start-Up is coached by one or several members from the Think-Tank, a core group of international high-level experts from the sector, which bring in their network, expertise and the current state-of-the-art knowledge. The coaches also ensure the strategic and practical orientation of the Start-Ups. The training programme provides the Start-Ups not only with the advanced knowhow for business development and management, but also the advanced knowledge on technical aspects of sustainable sanitation and water management (SSWM), the required practical experiences, support for extending their network, links to research and technology development, as well as first contacts with investors.
