"Building Louisiana's Water Cluster" Presentation at WEFTEC Stormwater Pavilion Theater Tues Sept 30 at 10am
NOLAVibe partner Steve Picou will present "Building Louisiana's Water Cluster" during a special session titled "Water Clusters From Milwaukee to NOLA" at 10am on Tuesday, September 30 in the Stormwater Pavilion Theater located on the expo show floor of the Morial Convention Center. Expo admission is free but registration is required.
The presentation is based on Picou's recently published thesis "Louisiana's Water Innovation Cluster: Is it ready for global competition." The work examines Louisiana's increasingly important water sectors within the context of the rise of water technology innovation clusters, and looks at two strong clusters: WaterTAP Ontario and the Milwaukee Water Council, in a comparative analysis with where Louisiana stands. The thesis includes recommendations and specific steps to build Louisiana's water cluster as key to sustaining a more resilient economy and environment.
The session includes the Milwaukee Water Council, represented by Elizabeth Thelen who will describe the progress and plans as they continue to build a world class water center for business development, education and research, including an overview of their entrepreneurial competition and accelerator programming. WEFTEC features an array of Louisiana-centric programming (see below) as part of their overall mission to have a lasting impact on the region.
