Since 2011, cewas has implemented approx. 50 water-nexus related ideation and incubation programmes all across the globe. Many of these programmes include a small financing component, starting from 1000 € up to 10’000 € per Start-up. The money is usually earmarked to further develop crucial elements of the business model and/or to test a working prototype with real customers in the market (MVP Testing). The small funds are managed by cewas and are usually milestone-based and disbursed in receipts.
