An Indianapolis-based water quality testing startup has won the Rise of the Rest pitch competition. A panel of judges selected 120Water, which provides subscription-based water-testing services for residents, schools and utilities, to win the $100,000 investment from AOL co-founder Steve Case.
Chief Executive Officer Megan Glover says the win puts the young company on the map and is “validation that what we’re doing matters and we need to continue to do it.”
Glover launched 120Water in 2016 along with former ExactTarget co-founder Chris Baggott. The company provides customers with water testing kits that include a water collection bottle designed to be filled and sent back for testing. Results are typically typically given to the customer within two weeks.
