Jennifer Sloat – Founder, CEO
Since 1996, Jennifer has been heavily invested in digital innovations including several industry firsts and hundreds of projects from dot-com boom and bust adventures to advanced technical solutions for non-profits, media/film, gaming, banks, and Fortune 500s.
In 2008 Jennifer focused the next 5 years learning, investigating, and delivering solutions as a Technical Consultant for divergent mining information systems in Sudbury. She absorbed a wealth of knowledge and developed digital strategies for energy, bulk material movement, lab/assays, inventory management, asset and work management.
Shocked by the mining industries inefficiencies and siloed approach to organization, Jennifer designed a solution in the birth of her company MineIQ. Here she used technology to support a system of efficiency and the safe extraction of minerals in order to start shifting mines into a digital evolution.
Additionally, Jennifer built her company to include similarly holistic and social goals, where her team members work from anywhere, have flexible schedules, travel less and are not often away from their families, lowering overhead and lowering carbon footprints. Efficient, healthy, and sustainable, MineIQ is as close to a social enterprise as a mining technology company can be.
After 20 years of experience developing technical strategies and leading teams through advanced and award-winning digital solutions, Jennifer is known as an executive level IoT strategist, entrepreneur, and champion for corporate sustainability and diversity.
