HARTFORD, CT(November 6, 2014)This fall, attorneys and staff of Murtha Cullina LLP’s Hartford office participated in a beta test for a local startup company called Voda Water.

For one month, Murtha employees had the opportunity to try Voda Water’s SmartWell Machine. The SmartWell is an innovative water cooler that filters water and allows users to add different flavors and vitamins. The purpose of this beta test was to evaluate the SmartWell’s overall performance, including user-friendliness, efficiency and taste.

"As young entrepreneurs, it was such a rewarding feeling to bring our product to Murtha Cullina," said Matthew Cremins, co-founder of Voda Water, "we received both positive and critical feedback which is essential to reaching an excellent final product."

Voda Water was formed through the University of Connecticut’s Innovation Quest (iQ) program. The company started with the idea to find an alternative to unclean tap water and overpriced and environmentally unfriendly bottled water.

Voda Water is a client of Murtha Cullina’s Entrepreneur Group. This group provides legal counsel and strategic business planning for emerging companies and their primary goal is to build a supportive community around entrepreneurship. Toward this end, Murtha Cullina has cultivated a comprehensive network that gives clients access to industry professionals who help entrepreneurs take their businesses forward.
