Southampton-based SEaB Energy, a WEConnect International certified women-owned business and one of the UK’s brightest innovators of waste to energy technology, will join the Mayor of London’s International Business Program on a forthcoming visit to New York and Chicago which will help the company further accelerate its growth in the North American market.
The entrepreneurial trip, hosted by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan and his deputy for business, Rajesh Agrawal, will lead a trade mission that includes 25 of London’s leading tech firms. From the 14th to the 21st of September, these high-growth B2B companies will join the Mayor for key meetings with major business players and the respective Mayors of Chicago and New York, Rahm Emanuel and Bill de Blasio.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan (link is external), said:
“London’s is one of the most vibrant and diverse places in the world to start and grow a technology business. These high growth companies have the potential to become the next global tech giants and I am delighted that they will join me in showing the world that London is open to talent, business and collaborations.” SEaB Energy’s patented ‘Power in a box’ small-scale power plant turns food and bio-waste into energy, water and fertilizer directly on the site where the waste is produced. This eliminates the costly, and harmful, movement of waste and provides the waste producer with a continuous revenue stream that will achieve payback in less than two years.

“We have already experienced how valuable the Mayor’s International Business Programme is helping us grow in the US having participated earlier this year in the Female Founders International Visit to Silicon Valley. Now, having secured a number of customer orders in the US, the purpose of this second visit is to explore further opportunities in localising our production in the US as well as meeting with potential distribution and maintenance partners.”
