Hundreds of millions of people around the world face dire health risks from drinking contaminated water. Current water treatment technologies are costly, requiring frequent filter replacement and chemical additives. HMSolution’s cost-effective, easy-to-use water treatment technology includes a filtering system that can last up to five years without replacement, and does not require additional chemicals. HMSolution has performed 100 laboratory tests to demonstrate effectiveness and is preparing for pilots. The team from Brown University participated in VentureWell’s E-Team Program in 2013. VentureWell invested in HMSolution’s seed round in 2016 alongside Slater Technology Fund.
