Innovation Hub Tenant Profile: Weatherlogics

Growing up on the Canadian Prairies means dealing with extreme weather conditions, from hot summers to freezing winters and everything in between. Matthieu Desorcy and Scott Kehler are no strangers to this vast range of weather conditions and have experienced first hand the challenges of forecasting weather in some of the most extreme climates. The young entrepreneurs founded Weatherlogics, a private-sector meteorology firm that provides accurate weather information to a wide range of clients. 

The team was initially based out of the North Forge space at 135 Innovation Drive but when North Forge moved their offices to the fourth floor of the newly built Smart Park Innovation Hub, Weatherlogics followed suit. “The Innovation Hub is a great space for us,” explains Scott Kehler, co-founder of Weatherlogics. “It offers flexible leasing options for companies like ours, that are growing. We also like being in an environment with other growing companies that we can learn from and share experiences with.” 

The Innovation Hub offers a variety of benefits to tenants. Aside from the obvious ones like an available boardroom and meeting room spaces, Kehler believes the most important benefit of all comes from being in an environment with other growing and innovative companies. “The constant flow of new companies and organizations through the space allows us many opportunities to learn new things, network and collaborate.”

The Collision Corridor is currently host to ten tenants as well as a large co-working space with individual desks available for rent. 

As for Weatherlogics, if you were to stop by their office at the Innovation Hub you would find them working hard to launch a new road weather prediction service for municipal and provincial governments. “The service gives snow clearing crews advanced weather information so they know when adverse winter weather is coming,” says Kehler. “This allows them to prepare crews for winter storms and tailor their operations to the weather conditions. By doing this, cities and provinces can save money, improve safety and enhance efficiency.”
