How Nasoni's Founder Raised Almost $1M To Bring The World’s First Fountain Faucet To Market

Using Project Management Best Practices

 

Biography:

Mr. Waddell is a Founding member (1998) of the Hampton Roads Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI HR) and the Hampton Roads Area Chapter of International Council on Systems Engineering (HRA INCOSE).

Steve Waddell is the President, CEO, and Founder of Nasoni, where he currently guides the development and production of a groundbreaking series of faucets.  A seasoned entrepreneur, he continues to build key investor relationships and drive rapid expansion within a highly competitive market. Easily able to navigate between hands-on project management and strategic oversight, Mr. Waddell constantly ensures Nasoni’s success.

Under development for more than 5 years, learn how the Nasoni Fountain Faucet came to be and is poised to reinvent the bathroom faucet market, right here from Hampton Roads. This launch is the culmination of more than 5 years of extensive design, 3D CAD and printed model development, redesign, and test. When Mr. Waddell achieved the level of excellence expected, he submitted the production prototypes for critical plumbing certifications testing for the US and
Canada. Nasoni also commissioned a research study with Old Dominion University (ODU) to prove that the fountain faucet offers a solution to the bathroom health issue associated with the microbial aerosol effect which has been the subject of numerous news reports concerning this little-known hazard.

Nasoni has won many design and entrepreneurial awards providing affirmation of the market receptivity for the fountain faucet, including the Best of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) People’s Choice Award. As the Founder of Nasoni, Mr. Waddell is uniquely prepared to tackle the significant challenges
associated with creating a revolutionary new faucet product category. He has identified a functionality that was missing in the faucet market and with incredible determination is now proving that existing bathroom faucets are outdated, inefficient and uncomfortable. This is a story that will inspire others and demonstrate that bold innovation is possible, even in the face of legacy industry icons.
