Atlanta, Georgia-based water data company, Aquagenuity, is one of the newest companies featured in the 2021 Atlanta Metro Export Challenge (Atlanta MEC) cohort alongside 11 other companies.
The Atlanta MEC provides small and medium-sized metro Atlanta businesses with funding and tailored mentorship to help develop international business prospects.
Aquagenuity’s mission is to build a future where everyone has access to real-time water quality data to protect their health, especially amidst a water crisis where 7 out of 10 Americans are being impacted by some form of water contamination.
“Aquagenuity is where water meets ingenuity. We are on a water search for water quality,” Doll Avant, founder and CEO of Aquagenuity said. “We heard about Flint, Michigan and their water being contaminated with lead. There are currently 106 million Americans being affected by lead-affected water. Contaminants are building up in our systems, we don’t notice it instantly but over time they can cause a lot of health problems. We provide a platform for people to monitor their local water quality.”
Avant is an inventor, data scientist, graduate of Harvard University, and a TEDx speaker. Her deep knowledge and passion for water equality across the globe has gotten her recognized by Forbes, The New York Times, Reuters, TechCrunch, and WIRED Magazine as the first app to help consumers easily answer the question “What’s In Your Water?” in real-time from smart devices and platforms they already use every day.
