On Tuesday, 29 March 2022, IWA-YWP Canada hosted a Waterside Chat event with Dr. Wim Audenaert, CEO of AM-Team. Through an engaging and lively discussion with Dr. Audenaert, we spoke about his transition from researcher to entrepreneur and the life of an entrepreneur in the water sector.
Dr. Audenaert also discussed how he and other co-founders of AM-Team saw the opportunity to utilize mathematical modelling to replace or complement physical trials in process engineering, developed AM-Team, and are now, supporting water industries in resource optimization. The discussion also addressed team building, culture, communication, and the growth of a young water start-up.
Dr. Audenaert also highlighted that besides growing a business, proper work-life balance is also important. It is a difficult exercise, but not impossible if you make effort and understand your priorities. Overall, it was very inspiring and insightful for the young water professionals, especially the ones who are scoping out entrepreneurship activities in the water sector. We encourage everyone to listen to our recorded webinar in YouTube
