viking innovations joins innovation place in saskatoon

In May 2016 Viking Innovations won the University of Saskatchewan Tech Venture Challenge, an annual business plan competition that helps entrepreneurs take their technology idea and translate it into a business.

The grand prize included $50,000 from the U of S Industry Liaison Office and office space from Innovation Place, valued at up to $10,000.

Mike Ransom, a journeyman electrician, partnered with Jackie Martin, owner of Bronze Developments and manager of Marco Developments, to found Viking Innovations and develop the Dalmatian Fire Protection System (Dalmatian).

Dalmatian is a small control panel designed to disconnect power to the kitchen range and counter plugs when the smoke alarm is activated. Dalmatian can be Wi-Fi enabled and allows users to disconnect this power remotely using their smart phone.

In June 2016 Viking Innovations joined Innovation Place in Saskatoon. Their office is located in Suite 127H in the Concourse building.
