Adrian Beyk’s determination and willingness to improve has led to his immense success with his new venture, Quanta Vici.

During his first year as an undergraduate computer engineering major at Ryerson, Beyk won a stage one Esch Award for an image editing software. The experience opened up an entire new realm of possibility. 

“Winning that Esch Award opened up a whole new world for me,” he recalls. “It made me realize that what I work on has value, that I can go places with it. I realized I wanted to build businesses for the rest of my life.”

Prior to winning a Stage Three Esch Award with Quanta Vici, Beyk was rejected twice- but that didn’t stop him from continuously striving for improvement.

“Each time we were rejected, it made us reach farther for what was necessary,” Beyk says. “Through ongoing support from iBoost, especially Dr. Tarek Sadek, we learned the importance of doing market research and having a business plan. When we finally did win, it was because we were really ready.”

 “The program forced us to learn things that have become the foundation of our approach. The success of Quanta Vici would not have been possible without the Esch process”.

After conducting proper market research, Beyk realized there was a huge opportunity in heated clothing to help with medical conditions such as arthritis, Reynauds and diabetes. And so he developed Quanta Vici, a line of gloves and socks that are connected to the user’s smartphone and can be electronically heated at the touch of a button.

Through an innovative approach, Quanta Vici developed Weardasun, the first app-controlled smart heated wearable. Weardasun’s technology has separated from similar products and Quanta Vici saw an incredibly successful soft-launch. Their Kickstarter campaign that launched in October raised $330,000 and sold 1,500 units, making the launch among the top 0.4% of all Kickstarter campaigns.

Beyk credits the Esch Awards for playing a significant role in his success.

 “The program forced us to learn things that have become the foundation of our approach. The success of Quanta Vici would not have been possible without the Esch process,” he says.
