1. Sunit Mohindroo and Ahmed Badruddin, Co-founders, WatrHub Inc.
Mohindroo and Badruddin are the brains behind a water data mining company calledWatrHub Inc. WatrHub Inc. was started due to a lack of organized water data in the market. The Toronto based company wanted to solve this frustrating problem by pulling water data from the internet and sorting it into a standard format that companies can easily use for their benefit.
Mohindroo says, "A lot of this data has been stored for years, but we didn't have the technology to mine it like we do now." The information WatrHub Inc. produces is valuable to water utility companies and startups and vendors in the water industry who are looking for market intelligence about potential clients.

He applied these tactics to produce Change Heroes, an online fundraising platform that makes it easy for anyone with the intention to make a difference to impact hundreds of children in the developing world in as little as three hours. By rallying one person to engage their network to give $3.33 a day for 3 months they can raise $10,000. This includes giving children access to clean drinking water.
