Denver Challenge Cup Competitors Bring Real-World Solutions to Tough Industries

January 23, 2014, startups from the Denver area came to compete for the chance to travel to the final round of the Challenge Cup in Washington, D.C. They came from the world of education, energy, health and smart cities—and all were looking to disrupt markets with unique strategies. They put their best pitches on display, especially as judges reminded them that their “competitors from around the world” were watching them that night.

Avivid’s target market isn’t exactly an easy one, either. The startup is combatting the $40-billion-a-year industry that is the natural gas and oil sector, and which already leverages hundreds of clean water competitors. Avivid’s success will hinge on their cost-effective technology, the company says, and that when proven, will be scaled to deploy throughout the United States as well as the developing world.
