Startup that disrupts water coolers could expand to New York

Hydration Labs, the maker of an environmentally-friendly water cooler called Bevi, landed more than $6 million in new funding last week, much of which will go toward expansion.

Sean Grundy, the startup’s co-founder, said the proceeds will help company expand its footprint geographically, moving beyond its home base of Boston to other cities like New York City.
