Datatecnics selected for the United Utilities Innovation Lab 2018

February 5, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that Datatecnics has been selected for the inaugural United Utilities (UU) Innovation Lab – a 14-week innovation programme setup to bring new technologies to the water sector.

The competitive programme received over 300 applications, with 22 shortlisted to pitch their idea.

Following a successful pitch, Datatecnics was selected as one of the seven Innovation Lab Partners and invited to UU’s Innovation Centre at their headquarters.

Here’s what our CEO, Suhayl Zulfiquar, had to say about getting selected for the accelerator:

This is an exciting opportunity for Datatecnics and we are keen to get as close as possible to the problems that water companies are seeking to address.
“United Utilities immediately understood our vision and I believe that this is a start of a longstanding partnership.
“We are looking forward to benefitting from UU’s deep experience and mentorship, while gaining access to data and insights to further develop our solutions.”
