News MOROCCO: 10 start-ups awarded for their water conservation solutions

The winners of the 2022 edition of the Hackathon Water Show are known since October 14, 2022. They are 10 Moroccan start-ups rewarded for their projects related to water preservation in the Marrakech-Safi region of Morocco. According to Emerging Business Factory (EBF), one of the organizers of the annual competition, the current water deficit in this region of the kingdom is about 564 million m3 per year, leading to an imbalance between supply and demand. Emerging Business Factory supports this initiative with the Regional Investment Center of Marrakech-Safi and the Near East Foundation.

The winners of the first edition of the Hackathon Water Show, which focuses on innovation for water conservation, will share a start-up grant of 500,000 Moroccan dirhams (about 46,500 euros) as part of an acceleration program, as well as additional funding from the Hackathon partners.
