Raise a Glass, to Those Who Make us Possible

our partners.

To become the organization we are today, we had to have help. We want to take a moment to thank all of our sponsors and partners ranging from large companies to individuals just like you. Each and every one of them have played a role, taken an action small or large, to help build alphabet to the global network organization it is today.


The biggest thank you we can possibly muster goes out to all of our Partners in Environment who work closely with us to help us achieve our goals. Your support and friendship means so much to us.




A huge thank you goes out to all of our title sponsors. Our close-knit relationship and the resources you provide us with are the reason our project exists today. From software to funding, from resources to materials, from lab space to love and support, these companies are our biggest superstars, our greatest ocean convergences. They allow our ideas to develop, grow, and become reality. Our project literally would not be possible without you.


Thank you, with no limits in the world...

A very special thank you goes out to all of our sponsors. Your support has taken our project above and beyond helping us reach our goals. With your support we created and tested new versions of our craft and are well on the road to deployment! Without you we wouldn't have the funding or need resources to build and test our systems, we wouldn't have the software needed to interpret data or design our solutions, and we wouldn't have support when we need it most. So here's to all of those that are helping us make a real difference in the world. Here's to our sponsors.
