Hotwire recognized an opportunity in an idea generated by an independent entrepreneur. After transforming the concept into an innovative “green” technology (ShowerStart), it was productized into a line of eco-friendly showerheads.
Securing product placement with key national retailers and adoption within utility company energy efficiency programs completed the next steps.
Begining as a technology development, Evolve Technologies has since become an independent company with successful capital raises from outside investors. To date more than 1,000,000 units have been sold. For more information visit Evolve Technologies.
