AIM2Flourish Inspiration: Ohio-Based Rain Brothers LLC

Posted 2.27.2018

In this new biweekly series, read an inspiring AIM2Flourish business innovation story written by Weatherhead School of Management students.

Rain Brothers is a Columbus, Ohio-based installer of rainwater harvesting systems for residential and commercial use. Their installations range from single rain barrels to cisterns that can hold tens of thousands of gallons of water. The company was founded 11 years ago by Johnathan Meier & Gordy Smith with the goal of providing sustainable access and use of water throughout the state of Ohio.

The company offers flexible solutions to meet a customer's needs, from a family-based system to one that can support a large community center, using a combination of millenia-old and brand-new technologies.

Thanks to Weatherhead School of Management student Giancarlo DiFranco for writing the AIM2Flourish innovation story called: Rain is Free. Use it.
