The face behind Innovaqua

Our founder, Mauricio Bonilla, has been passionate about technology since he was 12 years old and firmly believes that many of the world's problems can be solved through technological innovation.

His vision is for NUBE to become a standard household appliance, much like how we regard refrigerators today. Although his journey has been challenging, he finds reassurance in the story of Henry Ford, who faced skepticism when he introduced the mass-produced car. People questioned what was wrong with horses, and now, hardly anyone rides them. Similarly, Mauricio envisions a future where, in ten years, we will look back and wonder why anyone would carry bottled water.
