Water is the source of life. With a growing world population, climate change and increased economic wealth, water shortages will be one of the greatest global challenges of the coming decades. This affects our water and food supply and has a negative effect on nature and biodiversity. Which in turn leads to conflict and migration. We envision a future with sufficient water, extracted in new ways, for all plants, animals and people.
Our mission is to make the world greener with water from the air. Sponsh is committed to making a significant positive impact on the world. Our Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) is to have provided one billion young trees with water from air by 2040.
Inspired by nature, we develop smart solutions to generate off-grid, affordable water. The aim is to turn deserts into fertile land and revitalize drought-stricken communities. With which the opportunities to produce healthy food keep pace with growing demand.
Striving for 100% sustainability, profitability and business ethics
Continuous innovation, improvement and reflection to become and remain a world leader
Work smart, enjoy what we do and laugh enough along the way
Sponsh is also strongly convinced that sustainability should be part of the company DNA and should be reflected in every business aspect:
- All CO2 emissions from travel and office are already offset through Trees For All.
- A Sponsh Foundation has been started, see http://sponshfoundation.org. Part of Sponsh’s future profits will go to this non-profit organization to meet the growing challenge of water scarcity worldwide.
- Sponsh employees promise transparency, fairness and respect for others
- We believe in a healthy work-life balance and employee well-being. All our (future) employees are offered a share plan in the form of Stock Appreciation Rights (SARs).

Sponsh is located at Eindhoven University of Technology (TUe), where it has access to the high tech TUe laboratories. Sponsh is a greentech, social enterprise (B-corp certification pending) and uses its innovations to make the world greener.
