Just one year out of college, Latino entrepreneur Adrian Lievano has an idea that he thinks can greatly help tackle access to clean water in parts of the world where it's most needed.

The young man, whose parents immigrated from Cuba and El Salvador, co-founded a company, Everwaters, based on the creation of a coconut and earth-based ceramic water purifier.

Leviano, who studied mechanical engineering, will be pitching his idea to investors on "Make Me A Millionaire Inventor" on CNBC.
