The Water Challenge is a collaborative initiative between the Greater New Orleans Foundation, Propeller: A Force for Social Innovation, and The Idea Village focused on solving critical regional water issues through entrepreneurship in Louisiana.
Each year, Propeller opens a call for applications for the Water Challenge. The goal is to support small businesses, non-profits, and individuals that are working to make the region more sustainable.
“We are looking to fund and provide a platform for innovative solutions to flooding, coastal erosion, water quality, and increasing racial representation in water industries,” shared Abdulaziz Ali, marketing coordinator at Propeller.
Applications for the annual Water Challenge are due on February 2, 2018. Finalists have a shot at $15,000 in seed funding through the pitch competition scheduled for March 21 during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.
