The article notes that while the Coronavirus has put a variety of businesses at a standstill, entrepreneurial ingenuity continues to grow from this uncertainty, with many entrepreneurs taking advantage of this time to showcase their business savvy.
Canadian entrepreneurs in specific, Yahoo! argues, are not backing down from the challenge of reinvention.
“The resiliency of these entrepreneurs and employers during this time is integral, and we’ve selected 20 Canadians to watch and learn from as we head into 2021.”
Referencing Aclarus, Yahoo! writes that “cousins and co-founders, Adam Doran and Michael Doran started Aclarus Ozone in 2011 on the belief that ‘clean water changes everything. Aclarus Ozone makes it easy.’“
“Based out of Peterborough Ontario,” Yahoo! says, “the Doran’s had the vision to provide a water-treatment method that was eco-conscious yet effective.”
“Their solution can be scaled to treat the water of single-family homes and industrial operations alike.”
On June 11th, the duo won the 2020 Water’s Next Award at the 11th annual Canadian Water Summit, proving that their invention is receiving national recognition, and will be changing the face of water treatment first locally, and soon globally. (See: Peterborough wins big at Water’s Next Awards 2020 – “Cleantech Commons a premier destination for cleantech companies”, says PKED.)
Aclarus Ozone, currently based in the Fisher Drive Business Park, was selected as the winner in the “Projects and Technology – Water Resources” category for providing a practical, affordable system for the complete treatment of rainwater and green roof runoff water for non-potable reuse without chemicals.
Cleantech Commons, together with our friends at Peterborough and the Kawarthas Economic Development, jointly sponsored the “Early Adoption” category at this year’s awards ceremony.
Presenting the “early adoption” award via Zoom, Cleantech Commons executive director, Martin Yuill, described Peterborough as a “living lab for the water sector”.
Yuill told the Canadian Water Summit conference that Peterborough has a “collaborative business & innovation ecosystem“, which, he said, “inspires & drives success for the cleantech ventures that call our region home”.
