TruePani PBC is a startup from Georgia Tech that incorporated in June 2016 after competing as a finalist in the Georgia Tech InVenture Prize competition. The goal of TruePani is to keep drinking water safe in underserved communities around the world. To date, most organizations have worked to provide access to safe water through efforts such as wells, intermittent piped systems, or filter based systems. TruePani works to rid water stored in the home of harmful microbes through our kit: a cup and a lotus that utilize antimicrobial copper.
