NYS Deputy Secretary for the Environment to attend NYC Water Pitch Night
NEWIN and the New York State Center for Clean Water at Stony Brook University, are pleased to announce that Venetia Lannon, New York State’s Deputy Secretary for the Environment, will be the keynote speaker at the first Water PitchNight, NYC on Thursday, March 16.
The Theme: New York’s Water Quality Challenges
In a technology sector where markets are largely determined by regulation, hear from the Governor’s chief environmental policy advisor about the specific waterquality challenges facing New York, the need for more cost-effective treatment technologies, and the regional frameworks that are emerging to support the development and deployment of improved solutions.
Efforts to protect regional water sources have been a hallmark of the Cuomo administration. Early this year, the Governor called for a record $2 billion investment in critical water infrastructure across New York State in order enhance community health and wellness, safeguard our most important water resources and create jobs.
Lannon oversees the operation of the state’s environmental agencies and will highlight the Governor’s focus on protecting drinking water and addressing nitrogen pollution in coastal waters.
In addition, we have assembled an amazing team of innovators focused on tackling these pressing issues:
Mark Hopkinson – AquaVector
Rob McGinnis – Nagare Water
Brian Braggington-Smith – AquaGen ISI

Entrepreneurs, academics, technologists and investors are all invited to join #WaterPitchNight to get a glimpse of local innovation and connect with other water professionals.
