Riggs Eckelberry, founder and CEO of OriginClear said, “A ‘fintech for good’ company has a greater purpose than one that is purely for profit. My company Water On Demand isn’t just lending money or assisting with transactions. As centralized water infrastructure fails, more and more businesses and communities are having to take matters into their own hands, yet they lack the capital to obtain the treatment systems they need.
That’s where the idea of becoming the very first water fintech came into play. We wanted to take care of the funding and contract management—not just for us but for the water industry as a whole. This opens the door to incredible, world-changing technologies that otherwise wouldn’t be accessible to those that need them. That’s a fintech for good.”
