In 2014, we created HidrateSpark because of our passion to help people develop healthy habits. It all began when one of our close friends fell ill and through a process of elimination, we discovered that lack of hydration was the cause. The impact of this experience sparked our curiosity. That’s when we realized no water bottle had the technology to prevent this from happening.
So we went to work to create the perfect solution, at a startup weekend hackathon event. We won an award for our invention, then nurtured our innovation during a three-month Techstars Accelerator program. That culminated in the launch of the HidrateSpark® on Kickstarter. With major momentum and strong investor support, we quickly leveraged our expertise in engineering, design and health and wellness to create the world’s smartest water bottle.
We built HidrateSpark to keep you healthy. Every sip counts, so how much water you need is determined by science, based on your profile, where you live and the amount of water you need to stay healthy.
With 75% of Americans dehydrated, co-founder Coleman Iverson wanted to “make drinking water cool. You can sip, track, monitor how much you need and see the progress. The result: your cognitive, physical and emotional health increases. It’s simple: a hydrated person is healthier and more productive, at work and at home.”
HidrateSpark leaves nothing to chance. It’s a complex process, uniquely designed for you.
As co-founder and product engineer Alex Hambrock explains: “Developing healthier habits doesn’t have to be hard. We’ve created a product that fits into your life without being obtrusive. It’s easy to interact with, even when you’re too busy to check your phone. We designed HidrateSpark to remind you with a glow or alert, to make sure you don’t miss out on the hydration you need.”
Since then, HidrateSpark has grown into the leading global brand, owning the smart water bottle category. Today, HidrateSpark is powering research studies at world class hospitals, including the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic. It’s also attracted the attention of healthcare industry leaders, who view hydration as an essential element in health and wellness.
