Water Intelligence Company KETOS Raises $9M Series A
We’re thrilled to report that Better Ventures portfolio company KETOS, a provider of water intelligence solutions, closed a $9 million Series A round led by Energy Innovation. We invested in the Company’s seed round over a year ago and participated in the Series A along with existing investor Rethink Impact. KETOS combines innovative hardware with sophisticated software to revolutionize water safety and infrastructure management with continuous, real-time, cloud-based monitoring and analytics. They are the first and only company in the industry to provide real-time water quality monitoring of multiple contaminants within a single system at lab-precision levels while being fully automated and at a dramatically lower cost than other providers.
CEO and founder, Meena Sankaran, is the quintessential mission-driven founder and exactly the kind of entrepreneur we seek to back at Better Ventures. She is a “problem insider” who experienced first hand the challenges of unclean drinking water, having been exposed to many waterborne illnesses growing up in India. Since moving to the US and building an impressive career in technology, she’s been on a mission to solve the clean water problem. We are excited to watch Meena and her team take KETOS to the next level and build the company into a formidable presence in this large market.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to learn more about KETOS or Better Ventures. Lastly, we hope you can join us for Demo Oakland: Future of Food at the New Parkway Theater on March 20th. We’ll be featuring 10 startups leveraging software, data science, and biotechnology to build a more sustainable food system. We’re now taking applications to demo, so if you know of great food tech startups please send them our way. Thank you!
