Who we are
H2Ok Innovations is an IoT-enabled analytics platform providing data-driven optimization of industrial liquid systems for manufacturing. Liquid and water systems are at the heart of industrial manufacturing, but current methods of managing these fluid systems are incredibly inefficient and archaic, relying on manual grab sampling or monolithic sensors. This results in a lack of data and visibility, causing excessive resource and operating costs, as well as inefficient operations. We are rethinking this approach, with our comprehensive OS system comprised of a network of our capital un-intensive sensors, coupled with our ML-based optimization software. Backed by 2048 Ventures, 1517 Fund, Flybridge Capital, Techstars, and more, we are bringing Industry 4.0.
Why H2Ok Innovations
In the face of COVID causing traditional work more difficult to be done in the traditional labor-intensive manners, to the climate crisis creating risk of access to key natural resources, to the data revolution penetrating everything in our world except for a few sectors like manufacturing, now is the time ripe for disruption. In order to disrupt the field, we must understand current challenges and refuse to incrementally improve upon a flawed system. We are taking the latest innovation in sensing technology, commodifying these network devices in the environment of liquid systems to allow for mass-deployment, and uniquely filling in existing critical data gaps of fluid and fluid-adjacent systems. This novel data allows for data-driven decisions to be made, optimizing operations and reducing resource use. We believe in unlocking previously untapped data for our customers–– who comprise society's most fundamental sectors–– enabling them to gain a competitive advantage with agile operations.
What we believe in
We believe in radical curiosity, thirst for continuous iteration, interdisciplinary innovation, hunger to learn, autonomy, and give first. Agility and speed is at our core–– there is a high receptiveness to change and are no unproductive meetings. We value self-guidance, creativity, and growth. We actively listen; empathy is in our blood–– for our teammates, our customers, and our naysayers.
