This weekend, two of the current MPhil students, Ralph Bernhard and Jack Barrie, formed a team and took part in the Cambridge Start Up Hack weekend event (create a company in 48 hours). They won!
They developed a company called Water Peer. Water Peer is a water efficiency startup focused on behaviour modification through peer benchmarking. It provides water utilities and their customers with in-home water data and efficiency advice. The key aim of the company is to reduce household consumption of water in water-scarce areas.
Following this, they have made it through the Champions Circle of the Global Startup Battle in Silicon Valley. They have made a 1 minute video about our company and the teams with the top votes go through to the final.
