Edison Innovation Foundation of New Jersey Partners With the World Entrepreneur Forum in "Finding The Next Thomas Edison"

Top Canadian Inventors Emerge to Disrupt Entire Industries

VANCOUVER, Aug. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - "We have partnered with Venture Development Canucks, creators of the World Entrepreneur Forum to help spawn the world's next Thomas Edison," says John P. Keegan, President of the Edison Innovation Foundation in New Jersey. "Thomas Edison not only recognized opportunity, he created it. That's why we bring key influencers in Canadian innovation together in pursuit of 'Finding the Next Thomas Edison.'"

On July 25th, 2015 the World Entrepreneur Forum launched its pursuit of 'Finding the Next Thomas Edison' held at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, and featured companies including: Graphene Leaders Canada Inc. with patented nano-material technology that is 200x stronger than steel and 7x stronger than diamond; MTT Innovation Inc. with a light-steering laser projection technology to revolutionize the automotive, television and film industries; and Hempco Canada which is advancing in several markets globally with current revenues approaching $5mm and is in the process of going public on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Waveforce Electronics Inc. of Vancouver, British Columbia was recently granted the Tommy Award, for the invention of the 'Life Bulb,' which is designed to deliver life enhancing frequency stimulation specifically for the preservation of life. This patent pending technology emits specially created frequencies that are designed to limit the growth of pathogens. Third party trials will begin at the University of Victoria in early September 2015.

Stuart Gross, founder of Waveforce Electronics, says, "Among other uses, the 'Life Bulb' is designed to extend the shelf life of produce and meat for both consumer and industrial processing, shipping, and storage. This will have significant impact in a global market where food is found in grocery stores, fish markets, farmers markets, and the refrigerator within the home." Stuart continues" We have begun building products designed for home use, clinical use, and commercial applications, along with the first wearable device developed for delivering multiple frequencies into the body using light."

"The Tommy Award is presented by the Edison Innovation Foundation to individuals or organizations that have developed new and innovative products. Experts believe the 'Life Bulb' technology can also be a disruptive force in the health care industry," says John P. Keegan.

The co-creator of the World Entrepreneur Forum, Stephen Davis, CEO of Venture Development Canucks, would like to invite inventors from around the world to submit their ideas and inventions in order to become contenders to win the next Tommy Award, to be held in the summer of 2016.
