Open Water Foundation
The Open Water Foundation is a Colorado-based nonprofit that aims to provide an open source platform for organizations so that they can make better decisions about water. The idea for OWF came out of the fact organizations want to base their decisions based on data and science, but most analytical programs are cost-prohibitive. OWF won the social impact nonprofit category for the startup showcase at SXSW Eco.
