Episode Description

For this episode, I was delighted to speak to the talented Martin Murray, the Co-Founder and CEO of Waterdrop.

Now some of you may be familiar with Waterdrop, if not, don’t worry I have the pleasure of talking to their Founder and CEO about the business that is revolutionising the way we drink water. Not only that, it’s good for people, the planet and they are growing at a phenomenal rate!

As you’ll hear, Martin is a down to earth, authentic and passionate leader. An entrepreneur at heart he always had a burning desire to start a company – it just so happened he came up with an idea that has created the fastest growing F&B business in Europe as voted for by the FT. They’ve experienced over 400% growth YOY since inception and the future looks even brighter…

This is an all-encompassing conversation, including the early years of founding Waterdrop through to the priorities Martin’s focused on. We discuss the challenges they’ve faced scaling the business including entering new territories such as the US. Martin also shares some superb advice for aspiring entrupreneurs and how he goes about hiring and surrounding himself with the right people, it’s fascinating…
