VANCOUVER, CANADA, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QUEST WATER GLOBAL, INC. (OTC Pink: QWTR) ("Quest" and/or the "Company"), an innovative water technology company and developer of the solar-powered AQUAtap™ water purification, desalination, and distribution technology and the WEPS™ WaterMaker Atmospheric Water Extraction and Purification System, announced today that the Company has signed a Partnership Agreement with Dikembe Mutombo’s American Venture Group, LLC (“AVMA”).
The agreement with AVMA furthers the Company’s expansion of its Build-Own-Operate business model strategy. As an international facilitation firm, AVMA utilizes its global network of social, political, and business relationships in order to develop and further enhance industry opportunities that strengthen new and developing technologies, industries, products and services. AVMA maintains strong relationships worldwide with government leaders and industry principals along with numerous Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and sustains a strong presence worldwide, especially throughout Africa.
“AVMA brings a global value to the Partnership by connecting with world leaders to develop and expand business opportunities,” said John Balanko, Quest’s CEO & President. “American Venture Group and Quest Water Global are well-aligned in their vision of delivering clean, safe water to underserved populations, building capacity & resilient communities, and creating much needed jobs in the process.”
AVMA’s principals include Dikembe Mutombo, Founding Partner, Richard Hoffman, CEO & Founding Partner, and Maryan Ali, Founding Partner. Dikembe Mutombo, a former National Basketball Association (NBA) eight-time All Star and Hall of Famer, was one of the best defenders in the league’s history. Off the court, Dikembe has been noted as one of the most charitable players to have ever played the game. Giving back has always been a trademark of Dikembe’s personality, and he is known for his humanitarian work, focusing to improve the health, education and quality of life for the people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and throughout Africa. In 2009, Dikembe was named the NBA’s Global Ambassador, a role that saw him travel the world to celebrate the sport and take part in charitable events.
“Securing a strong water technology partner is a critical milestone for AVMA. We plan to capitalize on our relationships with Presidents and Ministers of several African countries to secure Public-Private Partnerships which will see the installation of 100’s of Quest’s AQUAtap™ systems, ultimately bringing clean water to these water scarce nations,” said Mr. Mutombo. “This will be an extension of the work that my Dikembe Mutombo Foundation is currently doing within Africa.”
