Water Consortium is Raising $50M

The Zug Water Consortium is raising a $50M debt facility for decentralized water infrastructure deployments, including Safe Water Enterprises and solar pumping for agricultural irrigation. Water is the future gold and oil, and this is a great way of diversifying your investments within the water sector. The fund will focus on the following types of investments:
  • Operating leases for capital equipment such as water treatment systems and solar power equipment
  • Construction finance for large-scale projects that require upfront capital prior to customer payments
  • Construction finance for projects with guaranteed offtake agreements
  • Investments in technologies complementing platform services (less than 10% of total investments)
The Zug Water Consortium was a tremendously positive outcome of the Innovate 4 Water forum hosted by SIIA at the Zug Impact Summit 2018 where 17 companies in the water sector came together to pitch their companies. You can also host the Innovate 4 Water forum by contacting them. INNOVATE 4 Water's next event is in Abuja. See the www.siia.ch/events page. The "Innovate 4 Water" forum is a concept curated for the following reasons:
  • To match-make all water stakeholders (water entrepreneurs, investors, consultants, NGOs, Donor agencies).
  • To foster development & and innovation in water technology & engineering.
  • To promote business models that will help deliver on the vision of sanitation, hygiene and water for all in West Africa.
  • To bring all water stakeholders in the region together to catalyze beneficial collaboration
  • To create awareness about the need for sanitation, hygiene and water for everyone in the region
