February 9, 2018: Microlyze Corporation Selected as Trout Tank H20 Participant
Colorado, and the entire western region, face some difficult challenges related to water – natural disasters (drought, floods, wildfires), aging infrastructure, variability and uncertainty in supply, growing demand from booming population growth, etc.
These local, state, and federal concerns are driving the need for innovation within the sector and for businesses to help solve these critical challenges. Solving these challenges is the only way Colorado will continue to be successful and thrive. Our quality of life and economy depend on it.
As a headwaters state and one of the most entrepreneurial in the U.S., Colorado is positioned to be on the leading edge of water innovation, technology, and problem-solving.
Trout Tank H2O is the first-of-its-kind program in Colorado brought to you by a collaboration between the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Denver Metro Small Business Development Center, Denver Water, Colorado State University, and TAP-IN.
It is about highlighting entrepreneurs and businesses with a water nexus and giving them opportunities to sharpen their pitching skills, gain exposure, secure funding, and build connections with lenders, investors, decision-makers, and key stakeholders within the Colorado business and water community.
Trout Tank H2O is about ensuring that the entrepreneurs who are stepping up to preserve and protect the things we love about living, working, and playing in Colorado are successful, which means we all get to continue to do the things we love. Participants are pitching to not only to increase their connections and gain visibility for their organization, but the winner of the Trout Tank H2O: Pitch Event will receive a $5,000 cash prize.
