AquaSensing, a tech startup started by MME professor Norman Zhou and ECE professor George Shaker, have earned a spot in the finals of an international pitch competition for water innovation.

The duo booked its spot in the global Water Dragons pitch competition after winning second place in the preliminal round against eight other companies.

The invention at the core of the company, which now consists of over a dozen technical developers, is a wireless, battery-free sensor that detects leaks to prevent water damage in apartments, offices and other buildings.
