When we think tech, we often think of gadgets, software, computers, pixels and bots. But on this episode of The Credentialed, we’re getting down to basics. We’re talking about clean, safe water and a simple innovation that’s designed to make it more plentiful, accessible and affordable across the globe. Theresa Dankovich, Ph.D. is cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of Folia Water, an unlikely 500 Startups alumn that manufactures low-cost paper water filters intended for use by low-income people who today spend too much of their money on bottled water or soda. Dankovich chats about how the company aims to get its technology into the hands of the people, what sets Folia Water apart from other tech startups -- and why even in Silicon Valley, not every startup is only about generating ROI for investors.
