Wayne Conrad – Durham Region's Thomas Edison

With more than 300 patents on record, Wayne Conrad may just be Durham Region’s Thomas Edison. He is the Chief Scientist of Omachron Science Inc., in Hampton.

Wayne has created and improved technologies in areas such as as water purification, cyclonic particle separation, alternative energy technologies, and advanced turbine engine designs. His inventions have found success as far away as the water treatment system in the space station and as close to home as your Shark vacuum.

As part of the Ignite Power Panel Wayne will be available to mentor and advise our two Ignite Start-ups. Who knows? Maybe some of our other applicants will catch his eye.

This is what Ignite is all about: connecting local innovators with the resources they need to succeed.
