Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our impact is direct – new solutions to key water problems, and systemic – developing the Silicon Valley for water, an ecosystem of stakeholders to the next great water innovations.

Our open innovation programming helps entrepreneurs identify problems that have social impact and major commercial market opportunities. Imagine H2O connects the most promising plans with world leaders in the water sector, government, and social enterprise to help turn new ideas into self-funding, high impact solutions.
