Scaling UP! H2O

071 The One About The Israeli Water Delegation

As an industrial water treatment professional we all need water to do our jobs.  But because of our jobs we have a tremendous opportunity to lead the way in reducing the usage of this valuable resource.

I am delighted to say that the Scaling UP! H2O podcast is reaching many nations and getting the attention of water treaters all over the world.   Because of this we were contacted about a water delegation coming up in Israel.   Israel is extremely innovative in water technologies.  And if you have every stopped to look, many of the new water technologies we use today came from Israel.

Join me as I speak with Gili Elkin, General Partner at Israel – Colorado Innovation Fund.   Together we will learn about how water treaters coming together can change how we use water on this planet we all share. (Habit 6 Rules!)
