Background

Growing up in a town nestled between two lakes and near the first national river, water recreation is something I've been passionate about my whole life. Therefore, when I hear about flood tragedies, I take it to heart. Vigil is a project that comes from this yearning of wanting to create a better balance with water.

Risks and challenges

This company is a startup in every sense of the word. Our biggest donors are our closest relatives. We operate out of our homes and we all have full-time jobs (I just went part-time) to support our shared passion for this project.

Throughout the process of receiving a patent and trademarking our brand, I've gotten to know the uspto.gov website well enough to get a job. I've expanded my knowledge of mechanical design and have had the opportunity to work with people who don't speak English as their native language.

All this to say we're ready for the next set of challenges and even though we're new, we are hungry and determined.
