How to solve water issues: the ripple effect project

The Ripple Effect project set out to:
•    improve access to safe drinking water for more than 500,000 of the world’s poorest and most underserved people;
•    seed innovation among local water providers; and
•    build the capacity for future development in the water sector as a whole.

Acumen Fund, a nonprofit global venture fund that uses entrepreneurial approaches to solve large-scale problems, brings experience in the water sector and a deep understanding of what brings success to social enterprise. IDEO offers a human-centered approach to designing products, services, and interactions.

Ripple Effect is an innovative model for connecting organizations, providing insight and inspiration, and giving design and business support to entrepreneurs looking to develop new offerings. The project was entirely public: Acumen Fund and IDEO teams worked closely with local companies and NGOs that provide safe drinking water and recorded what they learned so that others may benefit from it.
