November Biorenewables Café

by Valdeir Arantes ~ November 7th, 2013. Filed under: Upcoming Café.

Dear friends of Biorenewables Cafe,

We are pleased to announce that Toby Reid, Founder and CEO of Solegear Bioplastics, a Vancouver-based advanced material start-up company has agreed to share his experience with us on technology development and starting a technology-based start-up company in Vancouver.
“Adventures in Advanced Materials: What You Need To Know About Developing And Commercializing Technologies In Today’s Environment”
“Toby has been an entrepreneur for the past 8 years, as he started his first venture, Solegear Bioplastics, out of his basement in 2006. With a Bcomm from Dalhousie University, Reid researched, developed and is now commercializing the Company’s sustainable advanced materials technologies with a team of over 10 people and funding from both grant sources and venture capitalists. Prior to starting Solegear, Reid worked with a diverse range of companies, in sales & marketing roles: Naturally Advanced Technologies, Mountain Equipment Co-op and RBC Dominion Securities, to name a few. Toby was also part of the Mississippi community-based team that registered the most volunteers for the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in April of 2010. Born and raised in Toronto, but a West Coast resident for the past 12 years, Toby lives with his wife and two young children in North Vancouver, BC, and considers being a Dad his best job of all.”
