Not all bottled water is created equal. In fact, some stand out enough to reach massive success. There’s a new company that’s joining the ranks of others on the Inc. 5000, and even more exclusive Inc. 500 list. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is one of the fastest growing companies in America, and they are here to stay. They rank 414 and have made tremendous growth in a three year period. From 2014 and 2016 Waiakea grew an astonishing 1,059.3 percent! That is unheard of. Annually Inc Magazine filters through thousands of America’s top businesses and watches their revenue growth for three years. The Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water says it has been a dream for the company to be on the exclusive list since day one. He is looking forward to what Waiakea has to offer and how they can influence the world in a positive manner. Other leading companies on the list are well known Microsoft, Zappos, GoPro, Patagonia, Timberland, and Under Armour. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water will be honored in California at the 2017 Inc. 5000 Conference. Waiakea is an award-winning water bottle company that aims to help better the environment and be socially conscious.
Who’s behind this refreshing and socially conscious water brand? None other than Ryan Emmons, a young entrepreneur looking to make a positive impact on the world. It all started when he would vacation with family in Hawaii during the summer and winter months. They had access to some of the best, and most quality drinking water in the world. He though to himself that he could bottle that drinking water for consumers and also make it socially conscious.
That’s why he joined forces with Pump Aid to provide rural and disadvantaged communities in South Africa with clean drinking water. For every liter Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water sells, they donate 650 liters to these communities.
