CityTaps has developed a solution that bridges the gap between water utilities and the urban poor: a pre-payment service that comprises the world’s only smart and pre-paid water meter and billing software. Customers use mobile money to pre-pay for running water with any mobile phone, at any time, for any amount. Running water in the home is substantially cheaper, more convenient, and healthier than any alternative. CityTaps’ solution has the potential to dramatically improve the lives and well-being of people who do not have access to water in the home.
Large impact potential with a specific focus on impact for women, by providing a technology solution to improve efficiency in existing water distribution networks and improve access as well as reliability, especially for those living on less than $5 per day.
Significant potential to scale through partnerships with leading water utilities in Niger and other African countries by offering a clear value proposition around improved efficiencies.
A strong management team led by Grégoire Landel who has 20+ years of water sector experience.
