Emergency Disaster Assistance – Resilience Through Innovation

As part of Canadian Innovation Week, OpenBroadcaster Inc is releasing Pyrate 3.0 free and open-source software (FOSS). An open source emergency response radio and TV broadcast toolkit for stations to remotely access their studios and distribute CAP emergency alert messages during COVID19. Originally designed as a class project to teach computer coding skills, the Raspberry Pi is now mass produced, with over thirty million units sold, gaining a global network of commercial and educational users, based on their proven reliability and low cost. Pyrate 3.0 is open source broadcast automation software configured to run on the inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer for stations operating remotely under lock down guidelines, assisting them in unattended operation, studio access and distribution of emergency messages in regional indigenous dialects.

Ask Me Anything: Raising Your First Startup Investment

What to Expect: To celebrate Innovation Week, we will be having a special appearance from our CEO , Brett Colvin, and lawyer Josh Weinberger, where they will give both a practical and legal perspective of raising your first startup investment. Raising your first round of funding as a new founder is a perplexing journey that can be a daunting, frustrating, and time-consuming experience. As innovative thinking becomes more and more critical during the uncertainty of COVID-19, we will explore the current Do's and Dont's of raising money and the strategies Brett has used over the past two years that have helped him create Goodlawyer. More about Innovation Week: Now more than ever, innovative thinking has become a necessity for navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic. At Goodlawyer, we are reimaging what the landscape of law looks like in Canada through leveraging technology to make the practice of law better and more efficient. Too many people and businesses go without the legal help they need because they simply can't afford it. By streamlining the customer experience, we're helping everyone get access to quality, affordable and transparent legal services. Through ingenuity, creativity, persistence and a whole lot of teamwork, Goodlawyer is invested in building the small business and startup community.

AquaHacking Challenge 2020 British Columbia

Each year, through the AquaHacking Challenge, we engage with rising gen hackers, engineers and marketers from various universities to create multidisciplinary teams and develop clean-tech engineering, web and mobile solutions to solve water issues affecting different regions in Canada. This year, for the FIRST time, the AquaHacking Challenge is brought to British Columbia, hosted by the Okanagan Basin Water Board. The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) is an inter-regional local government agency founded in 1970, under B.C. provincial legislation, to promote the shared water interests of Okanagan communities. Its vision is to have clean and healthy water in perpetuity, meeting the needs of natural ecosystems, residents and agriculture – now and in the future. As the focus of the Challenge is demand-driven innovation, the water issues that will be tackled are designed and submitted by leading water organizations. These ‘water issue leaders’ will provide expert insights to the hacking teams to ensure they better understand the issues. The water issue leaders will also provide access to relevant data.

Light Bulb

Thomas Edison didn’t invent the electric light bulb. Credit for that illuminating discovery must go to an unlikely duo from Toronto. Dreaming of a bright future in 1874, medical student Henry Woodward and hotelkeeper Mathew Evans fashioned a bulb out of a glass tube that contained a large piece of carbon connected to two wires. When they hit the switch, the current flowed and the carbon glowed. But not for long. They then filled their bulb with inert nitrogen to prolong the burn. After testing the bulb with repeated success, the Torontonians patented their invention in both Canada and the United States and then confidently set out to secure the financing needed to take their bright idea from lab to marketplace. As has so often happened in Canada, they failed. Time and time again they were told their idea was just too risky. Unfunded, they looked for a buyer of both the U.S. patent rights for their bulb and the exclusive licence to their Canadian patent as well. The entrepreneurial Edison was quick to close the deal. The Wizard of Menlo Park then refined their design and unveiled his own miraculous invention in a dramatic display on New Year’s Eve 1879. The subsequent electrification of the world made this Canadian innovation one of the most important contributions to modern life. In all the jubilation, only two men were left alone in the dark.

Cirque du Soleil

In 1984, Guy Laliberté had a vision for the next century’s circus. The street performer from Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec imagined a spectacle that would centre on the virtuosity of the world’s finest performing artists. No prancing horses and snarling tigers, s’il vous plaît, no faded big tops or sawdust-strewn floors at local hockey arenas. This new circus would amaze with feats of almost inhuman strength and agility, dazzle with colourful costumes and brilliant lights, captivate with original music played live and continuously, invoke the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions. This new circus would blaze with the energy of the sun. Fired with the support of key partners, generous professional assistance and timely financial backing from governments, Laliberté made his vision real. Cirque du Soleil grew rapidly from a single touring show to become the largest theatrical producer in the world—staging dozens of immersive spectacles that transfix those in attendance. Artistic triumph has led to business success. Cirque du Soleil now employs four thousand people from fifty different countries performing in tents, theatres, nightclubs, casinos, films and television specials. Over 160 million spectators have experienced Cirque du Soleil – one Canadian’s startling vision realized for the world to see.
