Accelerating the deployment of water/wastewater-related testing & monitoring technologies from mature markets to Base-of-the-Pyramid communities around the world
Whilst we recognize the importance of storage, filtration, purification, treatment, and conveyance solutions in base of the pyramid communities, we believe their underlying problem is often antiquated testing and monitoring tools. Yes, they have 'water problems' but more fundamentally they have 'tool problems'? The result is that they don't have visibility or insights into water quality or quantity risks.
Bluehouse invests in growth-stage Testing & Monitoring technology companies that are interested and capable of pursuing market opportunities in Base-of-the-Pyramid communities around the world. We arrived at this thesis by asking why an innovative water quality testing company from California can’t be the market leader in, say, Cambodia, Honduras, or Mali? With the help of a Bluehouse investment, and a local partner in those countries, this future is not only possible, its plausible.
Our vision is to bring 21st-century testing and monitoring tools to communities in need, whether it's a family testing their tap water, a farm seeking to understand next year’s floods, or a town needing to understand future water supply. These tools have been elusive to Base-of-the-Pyramid communities…until now.
Innovations in what we refer to as Testing & Monitoring (aka Diagnostics), which may include hardware and software that provide increased visibility into risks associated with water or wastewater, in agriculture, aquaculture, buildings, climate, conservation, financial services, industry, power generation, and/or utilities.
How is the ESG framework utilized?
Measure impact by tracking sales to Base-of-the-Pyramid countries, with higher sales meaning the portfolio company’s testing and/or monitoring technology is reaching some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
How do we invest?
We typically cut one check to Bluehouse companies.
Mazarine maintains a robust funnel of early-stage companies with innovations in testing, monitoring, analytics, and the long tail of digital solutions. Bluehouse benefits from Mazarine's experience and expertise in diagnostics and decision support spanning multiple end-user markets.
