A road that brought people together - Spring Aqua
Building positive relationships is the cornerstone of human society. Business is built on relationships; products, services and finances being the tools through which those relationships are built.. This is an ongoing process of moving forward and making progress every day. Below is summarized the story of the inception of Spring Aqua.
When did this process begin?
2014 - September - Kenny Lu was on a seven-day business trip to Taiwan exploring modalities for developing health and wellness for the China/SE Asia region. It was on that trip Kenny met the key people who had developed the original Spring Aqua Clean water technology.
What meeting created the spark?
2014 November - Kenny Lu returned to Taiwan to develop and further the relationships with those people that he met on the previous trip. The spark came from a breakfast meeting between Kenny and a Chinese businessman, who has now become his respected mentor and guide in business and life. The two men saw eye to eye and heart to heart in their conversations about building a bridge between Asia and USA by developing businesses related to health, wellness, clean energy, clean water, clean air, and beauty products. Kenny's mentor has played an important role in building the business partnership with Professor Henry Chai, the inventor of the proprietary Spring Aqua clean water technology.
What was the most difficult challenge?
2015-2016 - One of the most difficult things to work through has been bridging the cultural and business differences, between the American and Asian cultures. The overarching determination to realize the bridge-building vision for a better world has made this cross-cultural collaboration a success.
When was the first team assembled?
2016 July - Earlier that year we knew that we were close in getting our technology ready for production. In July, the first group of entrepreneurs assembled by Kenny were invited to Asia to see the labs, meet the inventor, learn from the engineers, and witness the manufacturing processes.
When was the inception of Spring Aqua?
2016 October - A startup team was finalized and Spring Aqua became a legal business entity.
When was the first sale and installation?
2017 February - Our first sale and installation was on Feb 1st 2017. As the saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” This first sale was a milestone which marked the many steps which had come before, and out first step into the marketplace on our journey to bring clean, safe water to every corner of the globe.
