Startup Canada Newcomer Entrepreneur Award
Yvonne van den Berg and John van Pol | co-founders of Ingu Solutions
Originally from the Netherlands, the entrepreneurs launched their company in 2014. Now based in Calgary, their innovative technology provides oil and gas companies with immediate and affordable access to pipeline assets even in the most challenging conditions. Their revolutionary technology eliminates the need for human intervention, reduces inspection and repair costs, and improves preventive pipeline maintenance. With success in Alberta, they’ve secured over one million dollars in private investments, launched their first operational pipeline, and become active members of Calgary’s startup community. Both Yvonne and John are generous mentors, sharing best practices with other startups and giving back to Canada’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.
