Folia Water's patent-pending process uses standard paper machinery as the world's largest nanofactories to make antimicrobial Folia Filters for the low price of paper. Each is packaged like a coffee funnel and is a week of safe, germ-free drinking water for only 50 cents, priced to be affordable for low income families earning $2-10/day. Folia is creating a new $1B+ category of consumer goods water filters, to be sold through distributors in retail stores throughout developing countries as a mass-market staple at a 75-95% savings to bottled water. Following paid product-testing field trials in 30+ countries, we’re starting retail pilot trials in Mexico....

Recommendations

Adam Simons Advisor at Folia Water

Folia is solving one of the largest problems on the planet. And doing it in a way that will make the solution accessible to so many. The founders are smart, scrappy, and running this early stage business the right way. They have tremendous technical know how and a lot of vision. Folia is well set up for success and I am excited to see the growth ahead.

Mitra Ardron Advisor at Folia Water

I am impressed by Folia's potential to leverage existing manufacturing technologies and distribution channels to affordably address water access. I first met the team when they pitched at a competition I was judging and have been advising since then, their knowledge and enthusiasm is the right combination for solving both the technical and business challenges of this sector.

Scott Wolovich Advisor at The KneeKini Group

The Folia Water team is smart, resourceful, diverse, and driven. Their water filters are an affordable, innovative solution to one of the world's greatest challenges - in one of the largest consumer markets. It has been a pleasure to support such an effective and culturally relevant product with the potential to change the lives of millions who live without access to clean water.
