After studying biology at Oxford, John Sherwin moved to the US to get some experience in American startup companies. Sherwin was also an athlete, which he says involves being dehydrated much of the time. A combination of Sherwin’s studies and a desire to stay hydrated led to the creation of Hydrant, Inc.
Hydrant is an e-commerce company that offers single-serving packages of flavored powders specially designed to keep people hydrated through electrolytes and salts that the body loses naturally.
Hydrant Rapid Hydration comes in two versions—with or without caffeine— and right now there are four options without caffeine: the original lime, grapefruit and blood orange, or a variety. There are three flavors with caffeine. Hydrant mostly sells through its website and Amazon, but the products are also available at 47 Whole Foods Market stores. It plans to announce new retail partners in the coming months, Kim said.
In early May 2020, the company raised $5.7 million in Series A funding.
Hydrant has headquarters in New York, New York.
