Hydrant - Radically Simple, Effective Hydration. That’s All • New York, NY • Est. 2017
John Sherwin and Jai Kim founded Hydrant to solve an all-too-familiar problem: We were tired from all the pressure. Pressure to excel at our jobs, pressure to keep up with friends, the news, fit in exercise, healthy meals, eight hours of sleep and our laundry. The coffee cups and energy drinks were stacking up. We found ourselves wrecking our bodies just to get the job done.
An Oxford scientist and ex-McKinsey consultant, put their heads together to create a smarter pressure valve. By alleviating the fatigue that comes with chronic dehydration, our rapid hydration mix offers a healthier and more stable source of energy for all the people out there just like us — a way to start the day right, reset and keep trekking right through the onslaught.

How Accountfully Helps
Accountfully helps team Hydrant focus on their business and acts as a strategic advisor with experience in many types of businesses. The founders agree that it has helped; “Outsourcing our accounting team allows us to take time that would be used on day to day bookkeeping and monthly closes to help build the business and grow. As well, their experience with a multitude of different companies has helped us tremendously as we grow.”
