Driptech Turns 3!

Driptech survived terrible two and is charging through tantrum three! This past Saturday we celebrated Driptech's 3rd birthday by throwing a barbecue with 65 of our closest friends and biggest supporters.

The barbecue topped off what has been a very exciting summer for the company. Since last year Driptech's team has grown to 25 full-time employees, signed on 5 new partners, shipped more than 45 tons of drip tape to India, and added production capacity in China. In addition, we recently received the SF Business Times Cleantech + Sustainability Award, the SVN Innovation Award, and were selected by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer and named one of the GoingGreen Global 200 Top Private Companies- so there was much to celebrate!

Hydrated with Gordon Biersch beer (graciously donated by Dan Gordon) and Honest Tea (graciously donated by Seth Goldman) we enjoyed mingling, shooting hoops and getting back in touch with our elementary school days with a game of four square.

Thank you Gordon Biersch!

Thank you Honest Tea!

We were delighted to see so many of Driptech's supporters turn-out this weekend to celebrate another year of success. We wouldn't have gotten to where we are today without the tremendous help of our friends and advisors. Your introductions and goodwill have led to valuable team members and partnerships. For those of you who couldn't make it, you were sorely missed but we hope to see you next year when we turn 4!
