Ultraviolet Sciences has developed ultraviolet-based water purification technology that offers a smaller and cheaper way to kill water-born microbes. But is that enough to displace well-established technologies? Organizers have asked Neil Berlant of PFW Water Fund and Michael Snow of SnowPure to help UV Sciences CEO Ron Chaffee understand what kind of creative effort will be needed to help the startup achieve market traction and financial success.
