In this month’s video of Meet a Hamiltonian Immigrant we sit down with Israel Gasperin, Founder and CEO of Zentrela. Zentrela is a Hamilton-grown company that uses brain technology to improve driver safety. Currently, there are five team members working at the company. Four of them come from Mexico, China, and Turkey!
The company received two funding grants from Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE). In the first phase of OCE’s Small Business Innovation Challenge (SBIC) Zentrela was awarded $100K. Another $1 Million was awarded in the second phase in combination with matching funds.
Israel was one of the 2019 ONtrepreneur recipients, by the Ontario Brain Institute, which includes $50K of funds plus training and support in Neuroscience and Business Development. You can learn more about the work of Israel and his team by visiting their website.
