Akamai Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. has chosen the grantees for Cohort 2 of Accelerator Program for Early-Stage Innovations in Water. The Accelerator Program enables grantees to ideate their technology-based solutions for water conservation. This year, two grantees -- SmartTerra and Jaljeevika -- have been onboarded as part of Cohort 2.
Wizards is a global ideation program that allows Akamai employees to submit their innovative ideas and contribute to the business transformation of Akamai. The program has been running for eight years and has received more than 5000 idea submissions. We are proud that Akamai products like Page Integrity and Enterprise Threat Protector were once ideas on the Wizards portal, as were more than 45 other successful suggestions.
Akamai has been a strong advocate for water conservation by supporting early-stage innovations. This World Water Monitoring Day (September 18), we present the inspiring work of one of our innovators -- Foundation For Environmental Monitoring (FFEM), based in Bangalore, India -- that is working on developing open source devices to monitor key environmental parameters such as water and soil.
