We started RigUp over two years ago to build the premier marketplace for oilfield services. Our product began as a mobile app for the field and has grown into the best-in-class procurement, compliance, and vendor management solution for the upstream industry.
Last week I was invited to join over 300 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer tech leaders at the White House for the third annual LGBT Tech & Innovation Briefing. Together we discussed how technology can help address some of the nation's biggest problems in criminal justice reform, environment, health, inclusion, entrepreneurship, youth solutions, and improving LGBT federal statistics.
When we set out to build RigUp, we wanted to build a business and a technology that would catalyze positive impact across a vital industry. We had hundreds of meetings with energy executives, field operations, petroleum engineers, and community groups about the state of the energy industry. A common theme of improving “trust” emerged; trust between the operators and service companies, trust between field operations and finance teams, and most importantly trust between communities and the companies operating in their backyards. RigUp is building technology to restore trust in the energy sector. We’re putting together a team of world-class petroleum and software engineers to solve problems that at one point in time seemed unsolvable.
