LACI congratulates Ayyeka on it’s great showing at Imagine H2O’s 2016 Water Data Challenge. Ten promising data-driven water businesses were selected from a global field of 90 startups in 20 countries to participate in IH2O’s 7th annual innovation program. Winning teams will participate in IH2O’s rigorous business accelerator, benefitting from cash awards, mentorship, industry exposure, as well as introductions to customers and investors.
“Data is a fundamental tool to improve how we monitor and manage water,” said Andy Wheeler of GV (formerly Google Ventures) who served on the judging panel. “Imagine H2O’s Data Challenge attracted some of the most promising data solutions to tackle pressing water challenges globally.”
Ayyeka is gaining great traction in the field of water and wastewater instrumentation monitoring and control systems. They are nearing completion of their first full scale implementation of their systems with the Cincinnati Municipal Wastewater District and are in the planning stages of a pilot project with the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power.
The Challenge’s winner was Ceres Imaging (Oakland, CA), a breakthrough aerial imaging solution for agriculture. Offering a proprietary imaging technology and analytics platform currently unmatched in the industry, Ceres provides farmers affordable access to actionable data to manage water stress and fertilizer application.
Ayyeka and Apana (Spokane, WA), a commercial water use management and detection platform, were both recognized as runners-up. IH2O’s 2016 cohort offered a full range of innovative data solutions to critical water issues and all ten selectees were showcased at the organization’s annual Water Gala on March 16 in San Francisco.
