WaterTAP Launches Additional Call for Applications for Export Development Pilot Program

WaterTAP Export Development Pilot Program

Call for Companies

Application Deadline: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. ET

Is your Canadian water technology company interested in targeting high-potential water and wastewater utility clients in the United States?

WaterTAP, with funding from the Global Opportunities for Industry Associations (GOA) federal government grants and contribution program, is pleased to announce a call for companies to participate in an export development pilot program for the Canadian water sector.

WaterTAP is partnering with WatrHub Inc. to deliver this program. WatrHub is an Ontario-based data-mining and analytics company that delivers timely, tailored market intelligence on water and wastewater systems. WatrHub works with its clients to define sales targets, mine municipal data, and help identify, prioritize, and monitor high-potential leads.

Participating companies will work with WatrHub and WaterTAP over a four-month period to:

  • Identify up to 300 potential target U.S. utilities/municipalities within companies’ addressable market and high priority territories
  • Monitor these utilities/municipalities using predictive, company-specific indicators to generate sales pipeline activity

With the generous support of the GOA Program, participating companies will receive WatrHub’s service at a special rate. The current cost of this WatrHub service is US$16,000; companies will be asked to contribute CAN$8,921+HST, which is less than half of this service’s full market value.

This is an excellent opportunity to invest in market intelligence and refine your company’s sales strategy based on defined, high-potential leads in the United States.

Company eligibility requirements:

  • The company must be a Canadian registered for-profit company operating under the laws of Ontario or Canada and must have a permanent establishment in Canada.
  • The company must be interested in exploring the United States municipal sector.

Companies from across Canada will be selected for this pilot program. If your company meets the above eligibility requirements and you are interested in this opportunity, please submit this application form.
