waterdrop (R): Changing the Paradigms of the Beverage Industry with Limited Resources and Digital Marketing
INSEAD alumnus Martin Murray is the inventor of waterdrop , a cube made up of natural aromas, superfood extracts and vitamins that encourages people to drink more water by adding flavour. Although he initially builds a business on a lean budget, he knows that creating a unique brand is key for the success of his innovation. Not only is waterdrop in a category of its own - 'a microdrink' - but, unlike most drinks, the cubes can be sold online. With a product positioning 'drink more water', he tests the brand on his native Austrian market. The case follows Martin from the initial idea (prompted by the limited drinks range on-board a flight to Singapore) to recruiting a small team to launch what he believes will be a game-changer in the non-alcoholic beverage industry.
