About Mike

I am working on developing a wearable player tracking technology for hockey players. The goal is to automatically track player and game statistics, and provide coaches, trainers and associations with an ability to make better training decisions. The platform would connect players and teams socially to give an analytical comparison of various attributes. The business model is designed to focus on minor hockey associations – the largest and most undeserved segment of the hockey world. The technology itself could also adapt to other sports.

This project is being done in partnership with BCIT, and will spin-off in mid 2018 to its own commercial entity. I’m looking for a potential partner in this business that can bring strategic value to the commercial organization.

MY BACKGROUND:
I've been involved either as a founder, partner or executive contractor with about a dozen start-ups or early stage technology ventures. Most of these were started from scratch and grew into multi million-dollar entities eventually exiting either through acquisition or IPO on small cap markets. I’ve worked extensively in digital marketing, telecommunications, small business and energy sectors and specialize in developing scalable distribution networks, commercialization models and technology based products.
