A high-tech startup founded at Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) in 2013, aQysta aims to provide sustainable hydro-powered pumping solutions that can have a positive economic, environmental, and social impact. We are located in Yes!Delft, Europe’s biggest high-tech incubator that grants access to expertise, network, and research facilities. At Delft office, we conduct technology research, product design and development, sourcing, and global sales. In the South Asian region, we have our affiliated entity in Nepal, operating since 2015. aQysta Nepal sells and implements pumps in Nepal which serve as the platform for conducting research, experiments, and gathering market feedback. Our flagship product “Barsha Pump” is an award-winning innovative pump, which has been rolled out in various countries worldwide in a short period of time. This early success has enabled us to gain customer feedback, technical validation in diverse geographies, and market opportunity in diverse socio-economic conditions. aQysta is on a quest to sustainably provide water for farming. To do so, we are re-investing a majority of our profits back into the business to grow our company and further our mission.
