The Importance of Supporting Startups

We would like to thank every one of our early supporters.  The constant support and encouragement has truly touched the DROPLET team! With the fast approaching release of our first DROPLET teardrop camping trailers, we wanted to highlight the benefits of supporting startup companies. Our journey to this point began back in 2016 when the very first DROPLET trailer was being created. Today, we look forward to giving others the opportunity to have their very own DROPLET teardrop camping trailer. Entrepreneurship is not the easiest path to travel, but with all of the support the DROPLET team has received, we are excited to see the hard work pay off!

One of the key reasons to support startup businesses is the importance of entrepreneurship and the strength it offers to local and regional economies. Companies like DROPLET, create new jobs and foster a sense of community. The DROPLET trailers that will be available in Canada and the United States are made in Langley, British Columbia. We are proud to employ and work with craftsmen in our local area to bring the vision of the DROPLET camping trailer to life! In Vancouver, we are very fortunate to have a vibrant entrepreneurial community with a strong support network. We have been very fortunate to work out of Simon Fraser University’s Venture Labs. In addition, we have had amazing support from other organizations and companies in British Columbia, like Vancity Bank!  We believe that the success of a startup might inspire others to bring their idea to fruition. DROPLET was once just a dream too, but was made a reality in the hope of following the steps of some pretty amazing companies that are working to create meaningful products for a more engaged world.

As you might have noticed, the entrepreneurial community in your city or town is likely growing. It is important to support new and upcoming ideas because economic growth always starts locally. Creating a business is incredibility hard work, but having the support of your community can make all the difference. The positive impact of startup businesses on a local economy is powerful, and it is important for the community, government, local universities, and private individuals to support these efforts. Did you know that a successful startup company is more likely to stay in its home community and invest there? Meaning, the support you provide to startups increases the ability of that company to give back in a meaningful way. Ultimately, a world that fosters the birth of new ideas is a better world.
