The Big Idea
“PotaVida is working to bring data-driven decision-making to the disaster relief and aid world. The problem we want to address is that there is large wastage in aid and there is also lack of data that is needed to create accountability in that context. And that is a problem both for the organizations doing the work and who would like to be more efficient, and for their funders who are demanding a better metrics and are not able to get that information. And we work to do that by capturing usage data in the field for products, bringing it back to the organization and providing it in a distilled form – the right form for the right people.
Our first product is a water purifier that is driven entirely by sunlight and electronically records its own usage.”
