Funds, Grants & Support

Investment and Fundraising

Dreams are not built on lofty ideas, nor can it survive without money. The pre-revenue stage or described at the “valley of death” are often a tough time for startups. Without a proven track record, it is difficult to for investors to identify market potentials. Moreover, the complicated and tedious process in getting grants makes it difficult for cash strapped startups.

Here at Ripple2wave, we understand this and realize the importance of investment and funding raising for startups. Utilizing our ecosystem of venture capitalists, water utilities, government agencies as well as a network of international corporates and individuals, we seek to provide investment opportunities for each of our incubatees. Coupled alongside our own seed funding, we look to provide startups the means for development.

Going beyond, we also provide our incubatees with market research and analytics to explore opportunities and understand their short comings.
