CEO and Co-Founder – Zilper Trenchless
Zilper Trenchless is a construction tech startup that specializes in creating cost-efficient equipment for infrastructure projects, starting with underground piping projects. Our vision is to reduce the cost of infrastructure projects by using the latest technologies in what we consider a very traditional industry.
Zilper Trenchless’ lead product is a machine which uses a novel proprietary technology to install or replace pipes underground without needing to dig a trench. The company has already built and tested a first prototype (MVP) in a real project, achieving outstanding results that sparked the attention of potential clients, manufacturers, and other competing companies. In May 2018, Zilper Trenchless won in the MIT 100K “Launch” Competition (Audience Choice Award).
