Learning more about your industry is worthwhile for any business owner, especially when that learning contributes to a good cause.

That’s the experience the team behind HOPZERO, an Austin-based network security company, had recently when they partnered with Incubator CTX, on the campus of Concordia University where their company is headquartered, to conduct a market research study.

The study, helmed by Concordia University Texas online MBA students Erica Kasinski, Ashley Akroyd and Cecilee Perez, gave HOPZERO valuable intel about the enterprise security industry.

It also offered study participants the opportunity to receive either a gift card or donate a like amount to Water to Thrive, a non-profit dedicated to providing safe drinking water to communities across eastern Africa.

Many participants elected to support Water to Thrive. The picture above shows HOPZERO making that donation.

HOPZERO would like to thank everyone that participated in our market research study. They are delighted to work with these excellent organizations and thankful for the generosity of the study participants.
