Opportunity: Upwell Water LLC
Upwell Water is the leading tech-enabled water resource and infrastructure company. We own operating and new-build water assets, focusing on managing a drop of water from its source through treatment and efficient use. We strive toward our mission, to ensure a sustainable water future, by eliminating capital barriers to the adoption of water solutions.

Water is an $1 trillion global industry, and one of our most precious resources, but has historically lacked private capital to meet crucial needs. Upwell Water, featured in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and more, expects to deploy $1 billion of near-term investment, positioning our platform as the market leader. That capital enables development, construction, financing, and liquidity for water-related businesses and assets, from treatment plants, to pipelines, to farms with water assets, to infrastructure and equipment.
