Case Study Backgrounds:

Rayne Longboards | At Rayne Longboards, we’re committed to a single goal: to be the premium longboard maker, exceeding every expectation. We’re the golden standard for professionals & amateurs worldwide. Rayne Longboards is the world’s premier longboard manufacturer. The business was founded in 2004 and is situated at the base of the beautiful North Shore mountains in an unsuspecting alley near the harbour at 167 B East 1st Street. Our products are wholly designed and manufactured in Canada based on cornerstones of Quality, Progression & Authenticity.

 Precision NanoSystems | The NanoAssemblr enable the simple manufacture of novel nanoparticles that are used in medicine (nanomedicine). Nanomedicines are the “FedEx” of the health-care industry and are used for cell-specific delivery of research tools, diagnostic imaging agents and drugs to study, diagnose and treat disease. PNI’s technology allows scientists to identify the genetic cause of disease and to develop new types of nanomedicines faster and at lower cost.
