The Swiss Bluetec Bridge…
…strives to accelerate sustainable access to water and sanitation for economically poor people. Typically, these un- or underserved customers live in rural areas and in small towns in low and lower middle income countries.
We offer financing (up to CHF 250,000) and advice to innovative Swiss-based start-ups, SME and social entrepreneurs who are at the early stage of their journeys. At the end of the process, entrepreneurs who have succeeded in the field get recognised and promoted through the Swiss Bluetec Bridge label and network.
Included in our scope are innovative technologies, processes and business models that aim at:
- purifying water for human consumption or agriculture;
- providing drinking water (extract, ship, store, etc.) and ensuring more sustainable and equitable delivery of water supply services;
- making water use more efficient (human consumption, irrigation, small industries, energy generation, other uses, …), and
- preserving water quality (wastewater & sludge treatment at household or community level, other interventions intending to protect/preserve water in the immediate environment or in the related watershed).
Ideated in 2011 by the Global Programme Water at the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Swiss Bluetec Bridge is managed by Strategos SA, a Swiss boutique consulting practice, specialised in strategy, organization, management, development and training. Our goal is to help businesses and organisations identify and work on fundamental business, strategy and organizational questions with the aim to build enabling and sustainable solutions.
