About The Archimedes Project
“One man can move the world given a strong enough lever and a firm point on which to place it.” — Archimedes
Who are they?
The Archimedes Project is a not-for-profit organization that believes the most intractable problems in water and sanitation can be solved using market-driven approaches. Their goal is to end water-borne disease by supporting the design and launch of scalable and financially sustainable clean water and sanitation social enterprises around the world.
The Archimedes Project believes the world already has the technology, resources and expertise necessary to get water and sanitation to those who need it. All that’s missing is a little leverage.
The Archimedes Project co-founds revenue-generating enterprises that utilize existing cost-effective technologies and establish local partnerships to eliminate water-borne disease once and for all. They bring together visionaries, thinkers, makers and doers from across sectors in hackathon-style Ideation Labs to create lean, collaboration-driven social enterprises that can scale across a country.See more
