When Bill Ostrom saw the first biomechanical energy harvesting device (EHD) prototype, he was instantly captivated by the possibilities. A team of researchers at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, had designed the prototypes and were looking for help to refine and commercialize the product.
“I was excited about the potential,” explains Bill. “I knew there was nothing like this in the marketplace.” PARTEQ Innovations, the organization that commercializes inventions at Queen’s, set up the first meeting and an agreement was formed. Go Kin Packs was incorporated in August 2013.
The technology used in Go Kin is patent pending and is unique in the energy harvesting field.
Bill’s 27 years of operating a business in designing and manufacturing outdoor equipment has brought a wealth of experience to Go Kin. Passionate about Canadian design and manufacturing, Bill is working with Thunder Bay engineering companies to bring Go Kin to market.
