When business student Alexandra Abraham slipped on a wet hotel kitchen floor while catering an event, she resolved to fix the problem for commercial kitchens everywhere. Taking a leave from Seattle University's Albers School of Business, Alexandra designed, patented and prototyped a product that would prevent excess water from leaking or spilling from glass racks. Now in production at Cashmere Molding, a green manufacturing plant in Woodinville, WA, DripCatch™ is being hailed as an effective and affordable way to dramatically reduce the number of slip-and-fall incidents. Alexandra founded the Company with support from her family, friends and local investors in 2011.
