Derive Technologies Remembers 9-11-2001
On the 17th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11/2001, Derive Technologies once again remembers the 3,000 people that were lost in the deadliest attack on American soil. At the time, Derive's offices were in Manhattan's Financial District, just a few blocks from the World Trade Center site, with a separate technology laboratory on Wall Street--Wall Street is the location of our company's origin, where we still have a facility, and our current headquarters is in another location in the same area, similarly close to the new World Trade Center plaza. On that day, we checked in on, and supported wherever possible, our clients and partners across New York City and the Metro Area, while ensuring the safety of our employees and running for our lives. Following the attack, Derive joined other New York-based organizations to rebuild our city--specifically, helping our customers, partners and our many neighbors, as they so generously did for us as well, to recover from this disaster.
We honor and pay tribute to the fallen and affected, including the bravest of first-responders -- firefighters, police, emergency personnel, many from local hospitals and other New York Metro care providers, and volunteers -- all of the families who lost loved ones, and those who survived this awful cataclysm and experienced years, now even decades, of ill-effects from the event.
