Frog Creek Partners’ Ground-breaking Technology is Being Utilized in Three States
Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Casper, WY. Casper entrepreneur Brian Deurloo is the founder of Frog Creek Partners, an environmental technology company. With storm water being the number one source of water pollution, he is on a mission to remedy the problem. In 2016, Brian filed a patent for the Gutter Bin® storm water filtration system, and started the company with Chris Tippie. In the start-up phase of Frog Creek Partners, Brian took advantage of several Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network services to develop a business plan, secure angel capital, conduct market research, and register with government agencies.
“I started working with the SBDC very early on in the business planning process,” Brian said. “They offer a lot of value to budding entrepreneurs by helping guide them in their decision making process, business planning, and training. I would suggest to anybody who is considering entrepreneurship for the first time to reach out to their local SBDC.”
To date, Frog Creek Partners has over 100 systems in the ground, with Gutter Bins® in Sheridan, Casper, Jackson, and Cheyenne, Wyoming plus Colorado placements at the Denver Zoo, Parker, Colorado Springs, and Vail. Santa Maria, Carpinteria, and Port of Long Beach, California are also utilizing their technology.
