Team

Andrew Vandekop
Inventor & CEO
Andrew began his career in robotics engineering and sold his first patent at age 29. He's been in new product development his entire career and has applied these skills to three additional patents. During the time he spent field testing the Well Water Finders prototype, he served as a founding team member of a telecom start-up that went public on the NYSE in 2006 for $410 million.
Teisha Vandekop
Founder & COO
Teisha created Well Water Finders as a way to share the technology with landowners - to help them determine if they have sufficient groundwater under their property to drill a water well and then giving that information to a water well driller. She has spent the last two years working with commercial developers, water well drillers and landowners to determine the groundwater potential for properties. Prior to this, she spent several years as an executive vice president at one of the world's top PR agencies, executing new product introductions for Fortune 100 companies.

    Seeing Deeper Water Sources!

    Hi guys - wanted to let you know that the WWF test runs are progressing nicely. Last week we were calibrating the deep view of our system and had great results tracking the new Maverick Basin Aquifer across three towns in Texas (see image below). Why does this matter? Due to the expense of drilling, most of this aquifer is going to be out of reach but it is important to be able to see this deep to monitor the health of the watershed.

    We’re still meeting with potential manufacturers - answering their questions, visiting the labs, etc. And during this, we’ve been accepted as a new portfolio company of Capital Factory in Austin! We were introduced last week to their ecosystem and are immersed in an extensive mentor network, tech workshops & meetings with potential investors. Guys - we are moving closer and closer to our goal of improving quality of life through availability of water. Thank you for being a member of our company and a part of our journey!

    Greetings From Well Water Finders!

    Our technology is making a real difference in the fight against the global water crisis. We’ve developed an amazing system that can detect groundwater easily and affordably. Here’s how it works: We send over 20 electromagnetic pulses into the ground—like invisible signals to see what’s hiding beneath the surface. Then, we capture the signals that bounce back. It’s like a game of “ping pong” with the Earth, and we’re pretty good at it!

    Now, why is this important? Well, digging for water wells the traditional way can be expensive.. Every time you dig, it costs money, But with our system, you can kiss those expensive drilling attempts goodbye.

    Investors have a unique opportunity to be catalysts for positive change, empowering communities worldwide to enhance their access to groundwater. Join us as we invite you to become a part of our expanding company on Netcapital!

    Thank you so much, Andrew Vandekop

    Well Water Finders Selected as Land-Tech Accelerator at National Land Conference

    We’re in Louisville at the Realtors Land Institute’s National Land Conference and had the opportunity to present our groundwater technology solution on stage as one of their 2024 Land-Tech Accelerators! There have been some good questions and we wanted to share them with you and our answers:

    How do I get my hands on one of these?

    • The funds will be used to manufacture the initial units. They will be made available for sale and rent.

    Will investors get first opportunity to get one of the units?

    • Although we don’t have a specific program that allocates units solely to investors, we will be announcing the availability of units first through shareholder communications.

    Have you considered franchising?

    • For us to make a significant impact on water scarcity, we had to choose a business model that is rapidly scalable. Initially, we’re going to focus on direct sales with renewable software licensing.

    Hello from Well Water Finders!

    To reach our mission of improving the availability of groundwater, we are now accepting investors to become shareholders in our company! As droughts and scarcity of water increases, the demand for equipment that can accurately locate groundwater will become one of the most valuable technologies of our time.

    We are excited to announce that our Netcapital campaign is now LIVE! Investors can play a pivotal role in helping communities around the world improve their access to groundwater.

    We’re working on a dual-function system that identifies groundwater for extraction but can also be used to help recharge aquifers with harvested rainfall. In a world with record-breaking drought, we believe that recharging aquifers will be one of the most impactful uses of our technology.

    Thank you so much, Andrew Vandekop
