With a mission to advance Milwaukee's position as a world water center, Rich Meeusen provided an overview of the work of The Water Council in economic, talent and technology development centered on water technology. In particular, Mr. Meeusen described one of the Council’s most pioneering initiatives, the renovation of a seven-story warehouse in Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood into a water research and business accelerator center. The facility houses water research facilities for universities, existing water technology companies and emerging water entrepreneurs. This was a joint program with the Kellogg Alumni Club of Wisconsin.
