Alumni Update: Ashley Beattie

Kiwi Wearables at TechCrunch

One of our favourite parts of the job for the Bitmaker Labs team is to catch up with our alumni and find out about all the awesome things they're doing with their new skills. 

If you recognize his name, it may be because we’ve mentioned it on our blog before. Ashley came into the program from a background as a naval officer in the Canadian Forces. Seeking to develop his skills in Ruby on Rails, Ashley charged through the program and came out the other side as an amazing coder. Two weeks after completing the program he participated in AngelHackTO, the world’s largest hackathon, and built an app that ended up winning the competition. Flash forward to today, Ashley is now the co-founder of a fast growing Toronto-based startup called Kiwi Wearable Tech. Focusing on building and developing the next generation of wearable computer and sensor technology, these guys are doing awesome stuff.

The latest we heard from Kiwi was that they were awarded “Best Vertical Disrupter” at TechCrunch Disrupter Hackathon this year. Check out Ashley and fellow co-founder Zaki Patel demoing their work here. We wish all the best to them and can’t wait to see what where they go from here.

Learn all about his experiences this Thursday!
