CleanCoast The Water Quality Sticker offers surfers, divers and other coastal swimmers a water pollution detection tool that rapidly changes color when key pathogens are present in dangerous quantities in a coastal area. We are manufacturing this sticker to respond to specific pathogens that are harmful to human health in quantities that are designated unsafe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We will start launch in San Diego, where the sticker will turn red if EPA designated levels of Staphylococcus and/or norovirus are exceeded. These two pathogens are common pollutants in the region and have been known to cause a range of illnesses to local surfers; from discomfort to death. As we expand product sales, we will tailor the sticker to detect pathogens that are of higher concern in those regions....

Recommendations

Gwen Nero

I strongly recommend Laura Walsh and team CleanCoast for participation in the Triton Innovation Challenge. This team is participating in the Scripps Innovation Bootcamp. I have no doubt they can take advantage of those resources to pull together a strong pitch deck and compete in the semi-finals for this competition.
