Episode 126: Smart Devices & Smarter Players

Featuring Zach Hodder of Harpia

Listen as a podcast:

For Episode 126 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Zach Hodder—Founder of Calgary-based Harpia.


The story of Harpia is one of meeting what you need with what you have. As any rural hockey enthusiast can attest to, finding qualified coaching costs more than just the time on the ice—it takes transport costs, logistics, and lodging. But when that’s what it takes to get ahead in the game, how can families get ahead on a budget? Hodder looked to technology (specifically smartphones) as a vehicle for personalized training, analytics, and off-ice coaching on a family-friendly budget. Talk about a hat trick!
