Our Story

Upstream Tech was founded by Marshall and Alden - two software engineers with experience in several successful technology startups. Motivated to align their personal 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 with the goal of translating the technological capabilities into solutions for conservation organizations, governments, utilities, and companies. In 2018, Upstream Tech was acquired by Natel Energy, a water/energy resources company that develops innovative, distributed, sustainable hydropower solutions. This support has enabled our team to continue to grow and expand product offerings for a range of conservation and clean energy applications.
