The Duke of York has an interest in technology and innovation, entrepreneurship, and youth skills development. During his time in BC this week, The Duke of York paid a visit to Wavefront to learn more about the impact Canada’s Centre of Excellence for Wireless Commercialization and Research is having on growing the wireless sector and helping to build the national economy.

With a national mandate to accelerate the growth and success of wireless companies by connecting them with critical resources, partners and opportunities, Wavefront’s goals of generating economic and social benefits for Canada marry well with The Duke of York’s patronage of innovation and technology.

BC-based wireless entrepreneurs who are directly benefiting from Wavefront’s programs and services were given the unique opportunity to present their ventures to The Duke of York. These included Igor Faletski, CEO and Co-Founder of Mobify, and Mischa Steiner-Jovic, CEO of Awesense Wireless, as well as 15 year-old whiz kid developer Chris Bolton.
