Anu Sridharan is a young social entrepreneur in her twenties. She is the co-founder of NextDrop that improves access to water for residents in urban India. Anu is a Civil & Environmental Engineer. With NextDrop’s innovation, she was determined to tackle the problem of erratic water supply in urban areas where water is available only for few hours of the day.
NextDrop work with operators in the field and sends text messages 60 minutes before water arrives in their tap. It also offers utility tools to better manage and track leakages in water supply. Her team makes sure the residents are able to access timely and reliable information about piped water supply by a feedback loop meant for water management. This saves the people energy thinking when the water will come next.
Anu is one of the most successful social entrepreneurs of India and she had even made it to the Forbes ‘30 Social Entrepreneurs Under 30’ list.
