Rich ‘Raz’ Razgaitis, co-founder of FloWater in 2013, envisions universal access to trustworthy, environmentally friendly drinking water. Under his leadership, FloWater has become a rapidly growing company, earning consecutive spots on the “”Inc 5000″” list and recognition by Fast Company as a “”World Changing Idea.”” The patented hardware purifies tap water globally, preventing 500 million plastic bottles from polluting the environment.

FloWater, present in all 50 states and global markets, serves renowned brands like Google and Apple, major events like Coachella, and partners with non-profits like Dig Deep for initiatives in places like the Navajo Nation and Flint, Michigan. During the pandemic, Raz pivoted FloWater to provide safe water for schools, solidifying its position as a leader. In 2022, FloWater achieved profitability, a 60% YoY sales growth, and was acquired by Bluewater.

Raz’s career spans Fortune 500 companies, leading venture-backed startups, and turning around privately held companies. He has excelled in the consumer goods space, tech/e-commerce, and achieved exits in prior ventures. A Midwest native with a BA in marketing and an MBA from Anderson University, Razgaitis combines business acumen with a passion for philanthropy. Outside work, he engages in dad jokes with his daughters and volunteers with Breakthrough, focusing on ending mass incarceration. Based in Denver, he enjoys motorcycling and snowboarding.
