Y Combinator wrote on their blog;
One area we think a lot about is water—natural fresh supplies could be at serious risk around the world. We’re close to a tipping point where technology will let us make clean water extremely abundant and cheap. We will create more than enough clean water for everyone in the world, for any use necessary.
Paul Graham founder Y Combinator further said;
We’d love to help founders working on this problem get there faster. Ideas could range from lower-cost desalination plants, novel purification technologies, smart irrigation systems, mechanisms to reduce water usage, or something completely different.
