The need for electrical energy in and around the pool increases and the use of cable can be cumbersome and dangerous.
Why did you select that specific target country?
USA is by far the most important swimming pool market in the world.
Who are your partners in the target country?
Pentair is a major equipment manufacturer in the US with a huge access to market.
What is your long term vision for your company working in your chosen partner country?
Despite our difference in size, we are complementary and our agility can be useful for Pentair in the long term to quickly bring breakthrough innovations to the US market.
What impact do you believe INNOWWIDE will have on your company?
Apart from the financial support, the recognition of our project by INNOWWIDE is a great asset to assert our credibility with our partner.
Can you offer any advice or guidance to others looking to apply for INNOWWIDE grants?
The VAP process has pushed us to formalize and structure the evaluation phase which we tended to pass quickly although it is crucial for the success of the project.
