Fatigue Science wins ‘Top Canadian Startup’ award at Metabridge

Last week, Fatigue Science travelled to Kelowna, BC to participate in a pretty unique conference.

Metabridge is an invitation-only event where Canadian entrepreneurs, financiers and technology VIPs from around the world get together to talk shop.

“I attended the event in 2014 as a guest, and knew that attending this year as a presenter would be a game changer for the company,” said Sean Kerklaan, CEO of Fatigue Science. “We made it a priority this year to be accepted and to show up with a unique product to present and a great story to tell.”

At the conference, Fatigue Science competed against 14 other tech companies for the Top Canadian Startup prize. After consideration by the all-star panel of judges, Fatigue Science took home the top award.

 

 

“It was amazing to see so many great startups from across Canada represented at Metabridge. It’s clear that Canada’s tech scene is becoming a very exciting space to watch. Metabridge provided us the opportunity to meet with over 10 major venture capitalist firms from around the world. They were very interested with what was going on in Canada right now. ”

Present at the event was BC’s Minister of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services, Amrik Virk. Virk personally presented Fatigue Science with the award for Top Canadian Startup.

 

 

“It is really encouraging to see our political leaders engaged at an event like this.” said Kerklaan. “It is one of the many reasons that we think Vancouver is the best place in the world to run a technology business.”
