Our story

Marshall and Alden, two software engineers with experience in several successful technology startups, founded Upstream Tech. Motivated to align their passion with their backgrounds, they started Upstream Tech to harness technological innovations for an underserved space: conservation and water.

In 2019, we launched both HydroForecast and Lens. The Upstream Tech team grew to include computer programmers, machine learning engineers, and environmental experts to translate technological capabilities into solutions for conservation organizations, governments, utilities, and companies.

The team continues to grow and expand product offerings for a range of conservation and clean energy applications.
