Business Profile Series
Smartskin


Not only is Kumaran Thillainadarajah’s startup keeping him in the province, but it is attracting other former New Brunswick dwellers back as well.

Thillainadarajah grew up in Sri Lanka before arriving in Canada to study Engineering at the University of New Brunswick.  Since arriving, he has seen the growth of Fredericton’s entrepreneurial community first hand.

“The benefit of conducting your business out of Fredericton is that we have some world class mentors. I’ve been very fortunate to work with some really smart people who imparted their wisdom on me and guided me through the ups and downs of starting a business and commercializing it,” saysThillainadarajah, who added that good mentorship was equally as helpful as the startup capital they received, including a 20,000 SEED loan from Ignite Fredericton.

Smart Skin Technologies remains to be proudly UNB-born, maintaining good relationships with the university’s faculty, who tip them off about up coming talent. They have 15 alumni working for the company.
