As co-founder of Better Current, Colin explores business opportunities to support clients on renewable energy projects. Colin continues to bring his passion to companies looking to solve how they transition to clean energy.
Colin lead the marketing & product team to launch Jenni on Indiegogo. With support from an exceptional team, cinematographers, designers and advisors, Colin was able to launch this smart energy storage product in Spring of 2017. The campaign did not reach its ambitious goal to pre-sell 500 units, however the team did validate consumer interest (100 units were pre-sold). Jenni awaits the resources to manufacture further.
Transitioning to clean energy means making solar accessible and top of mind. Colin helps clients make solar phone charging stations available with Better ReCharge stations. Charging stations can be found at music festivals, conferences and events providing unique branding platforms, as well as permanent custom installations.
On-the-go charging & branding that's renewable.
Full Cup Coffee
Concept: Born from Colin's enthusiasm for outdoor sporting events, coffee and renewable energy, Full Cup Coffee is an idea to brew socially responsible and renewable coffee beans from the power of the sun. Working with a design team Colin developed the pitch to an EV manufacturer and operated a coffee stand for a season to learn the mobile coffee business at triathlons in southern Ontario.
Power for the mobile business.
Concept: Piloted at Evergreen Brick Works, Colin collaborated with a team of OCAD students to create small landscape designs to take advantage of unused spaces in urban environments.
Bringing green space back to cities one square foot at a time.
Fit, Fresh & Clean
Fit, Fresh & Clean was a lifestyle site committed to clean living created by the talented Kate Daley. Aside from being her husband, Colin created and continues to support Kate with her site design. However, most of their time is currently spent raising their two amazing daughters in Toronto.
From 2013 - 2015, Colin trained with some of the best coaches in Ontario to compete as an elite triathlete where he travelled to competitions in the US, UK & Morocco, as well as across Canada. His favourite race is the Escape from Alcatraz, and continues to swim, bike and run today. With the support from talented cinematographers, Cam Roden & James Arthurs, this video was created (video is unavailable at the moment, will be back soon!).
Always set the bar high.
In 2010, Colin worked co-found Del Active Sports Camp, initially setting up the business and framework for running the camp. The camp continues its growth today, alongside good friend, co-founder and Guidance Counsellor, David Stratton.
Stay active, stay healthy.
In 2009, Colin cycled from Toronto to Halifax, where he received his Bachelor of Commerce from Dalhousie University. Hydro Heroes was a non-profit created to raise awareness for world water issues. Working with designers to create the logo and website (which is no longer active), and a team of friends from university, Colin organized this fund raising initiative with Canadian Feed the Children. He went on to be a youth leader at the World Water Forum in Istanbul, and continues to support water related causes via Kiva and his community.
