Out of ~750 application Raptors Design, LLC received one of the six awards from the Repsol Foundation Entrepreneurs Fund for 2014. I used the funds to develop a scaled prototype of the HAWK Tool and test it. The wonderful part of receiving the award is the 5+ weeks of project management including lectures on patents, financial diligence, planning, contingency planning, and more.

In March 2016, Raptors Design received a contract with the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) Technical Assessment Program (TAP) to demonstrate feasibility of generating a tangled wire mass inside an 11 inch free flowing stream and to measure the stemming of the flow. The tests where a success!
