This event was webcasted live - please visit SIWI Media Hub for more viewing and sharing options.


The seminar will start with presenting the 2014 Stockholm Industry Water Award to eThekwini Water and Sanitation.


Through a series of short presentations and a panel discussion, the Founders Business Seminar will, focus on if and how the private sector can contribute to sustainable scaling up of the provision of sanitation services. What is the sanitation market niche for corporations to get involved in? Should the business model be built around closing the loop and combining sanitation, energy and agricultural services? What are the conditions to attract impact investment into WASH at a much bigger scale? The seminar will seek to provide perspectives and answers on questions that underpin the development of inclusive sanitation business models benefitting from the experience of private sector, regulators, civil society and investors.
