Join host Robert Forto as he welcomes William Loopesko, the founder of PuppTech, a cool new company that makes a product that allows your dog to remain safe in your car, at dog shows and more.


William left his career as an engineer two years ago to start PuppTech out of a desire to spend more time adventuring with my dog, Clovis. He holds a BA in Engineering from Bates College and a Masters in Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. On any given day, you can find him coding, running, or hiking a 14er — nearly all of which he does with Clovis. William believes that all dogs, especially working dogs, deserve to travel safely with their owners and to have just as many adventures.
Now that PuppTech has reached its first crowdfunding goal on Indiegogo, William is working at full-speed to bring the PuppComm to dog-loving owners as soon as possible

What we discuss on this episode:

  • How PuppTech got its start
  • The trials and tribulations of inventing a new product
  • How the product works
  • How people can be one of the first to get this product through their crowdfunding campaign
