Featuring Steven Martens of Grid 749 Innovations

Listen as a podcast:

For Episode 225 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Steven Martens, the founder of Grid 749 Innovations. But today, we’re not here to talk about Steven’s company. We’re here to talk about his work with Mount Royal University’s Hydrogen Innovation Accelerator and what it means for Edmonton and Canadian businesses. In partnership with Edmonton Global, The Hydrogen Innovation Accelerator will train teams on a repeatable and scalable innovation process to capture new value and revenue streams from the emerging Hydrogen economy in Western Canada. Each company will develop and test a new product and/or service concept by the end of their 4-day 4-step program, held over a 90 day window.
