Our Mission

Accelerating the transition to a Water-Secure World

We believe that by showing companies the business case for mitigating water risk, Waterplan will accelerate their transition to a world where companies are incentivized to save more water, abate the discharge of polluting effluents, conserve watersheds and preserve shared value.

Our Story

Founders met over five years ago, working together at the Global Shapers Community of the World Economic Forum. Nico is a domain expert in the area. He is a medical doctor, and started treating waterborne diseases and ended up bringing safe water access to more than 300k people worldwide. After Jose Ignacio's previous B2B SaaS company was acquired, they decided to join forces with Olivia and Matias (ex c-level of Wolox, acquired by Accenture) and merge their tech and water expertise to create a tech company to help accelerate the transition to a Water Secure World.
