Will Cadell

I am the founder and CEO of Sparkgeo, a geospatial partner for some of the biggest brands in technology. Since starting Sparkgeo, I've been helping startups, large enterprises, and non-profits across North America make the most of location and the strategic application of geospatial technology.

With an academic background in Engineering and Remote Sensing, I have worked in government science, municipal, resources and technology sectors turning data into value. At Sparkgeo, I lead a distributed team of geospatial experts, solving interesting problems at web scale and providing geospatial advice to unicorn Startups and Fortune 500 companies alike.

I am also the Chair of Innovation Central Society, a non-profit focused on supporting technology entrepreneurs in Northern British Columbia by providing business programming and co-working space.
