Entrepreneurs see solutions where other people see problems. But that doesn’t mean the journey from brainstorm to breakthrough is simple or without fear

Canada is a nation built on the hard work and ingenuity of individuals bold enough to brave harsh territories, huge distances, and stiff competition. Canadian innovators have been responsible for world-changing ideas like insulin and quantum computing, but also for more pedestrian, yet still ingenious ideas, like the paint roller, the light bulb, and wireless radio transmission. The reason Canadians aren’t known as well as Thomas Edison is often a matter of business, not brains.

Fearless is a collection of stories of amazing successes by Canadian entrepreneurs, of those who supported them, and of the things they all learned to “fear less” — such as failure, funding, and government regulations — along the way.

Fearless is also a celebration of 75 years of the National Research Council of Canada’s Industrial Research Assistance Program, a national initiative founded to provide advice, connections, expertise, and funding to Canadian innovators.

Trained as a scientist, Drew de Kergommeaux spent 10 years in medical research prior to making the leap to entrepreneur as the owner/operator of a retail and manufacturing enterprise. Another ten years on, he took his combined scientific and business acumen and applied it to a new position as an Industrial Technology Advisor with the National Research Council of Canada’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP). Drew was a key participant in IRAP’s initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic and now, along with part-time work on several IRAP initiatives, he divides his time between his interests as an amateur musician, botanist, and avid cyclist. He lives in Ottawa, Ontario.
