Martin is an entrepreneur at heart, but most of all, the father of four beautiful children, his greatest pride. He grew up in the region in a family of farmers who had innovation at heart. The values instilled in him in this environment (perseverance, effort, surpassing oneself, creativity, and patience) have paved the way for the entrepreneur he is today. His atypical path led him to start several agricultural and maple syrup businesses in Canada and the United States, as well as to start Smartrek Technologies with his partners. They are technology enthusiasts who he met during his studies in mechanical engineering.
