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.

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.

Natel Energy, a water/energy resources company that develops innovative, distributed, sustainable hydropower solutions, acquired Upstream Tech in 2018. This support has enabled our team to continue to grow and expand product offerings for a range of conservation and clean energy applications.
