Kinrot Incubator

Kinrot, an incubator focused on water technologies, has named Assaf Barnea as its new CEO according to a Globes report. Barnea recently served as VP of Business Development at the Mekorot National Water Company and oversaw the establishment of Mekorot's own incubator -- the WaTech Entrepreneurship and Partnership Center for Water Technologies.

Founded in 1993 as part of the Israeli technological incubators program, Kinrot was privatized last year. Based in the Jordan Valley, it has several portfolio companies that operate in the water sector.
