Minnesota e-commerce biz finds its cause

by Tristan Pollock


Water Filters for CharityWaterFilters.net began on founder and CEO Jamin Arvig’s family room couch nearly ten years ago and has since become recognized nationwide as one of the fasting growing private e-commerce companies three years running by Inc. Magazine.

As such, the now 30-person operation moved on from “floral patterns and dust bunnies” to a state-of-the-art 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Zumbrota, Minn. to support 566 percent, 3-year growth that pushed annual revenues up over the $10-million mark.

WaterFilters.net may be a for-profit company, but the water runs deeper in this corporate culture.
