The SOFI (Scale Out For Impact) Programme is an initiative run by the Newton Fund, Innovate UK and the TIA (Technology Innovation Agency) from South Africa with the aim to create partnerships between companies in the UK and South Africa, the idea being to bring solutions to disadvantages communities through innovation and collaboration.
Sensor IT was selected for the programme as part of the UK contingent, and we have partnered with a great South African startup, BN Aqua, to add our bit to this great initiative. BN Aqua has developed a fantastic system that targets the purification of acidic mine wastewater to a stage that will be suitable for drinking or irrigation, and Sensor IT will be responsible for the digitalisation of the system.
Hopefully, this partnership will bring a great product to fruition, which we believe will not only add significant value to communities across South Africa, but will also create job and upskilling opportunities.
Good luck, BN Aqua and Sensor IT.
