Innovobot welcomes Guylain Roy-MacHabée as Operating Partner
The Vancouver-based, high-tech executive, entrepreneur and sailor will captain our Cleantech Ecosystem


Montreal, December 15, 2022– Investment and innovation platform Innovobot is excited to announce that wireless, location and embedded-to-cloud software solutions expert, Guylain Roy MacHabée, joins the organization as an Operating Partner and Head of our Cleantech Ecosystem. The McGill graduate will also oversee the development and growth of our Internet of Things (IoT) laboratory, a new part of the
Innovobot Labs that will accelerate and support new Cleantech opportunities. Guylain is based in Vancouver to ensure an active business presence on the West Coast and to emphasize Innovobot’s pan-Canadian identity.

Guylain brings 30 years of field experience working with blue-chip and venture-backed start-up firms and building an enviable international reputation as a hi-tech executive and entrepreneur. Rx Networks Inc., a company he co-founded and led from 2005 to 2017, quickly became a key enabler of location-based services, providing solutions to over a billion smartphones worldwide. After its acquisition by BDStar in 2017, he led Fathom Systems Inc., a spinoff developing and selling Bluetooth-based real-time indoor location solutions for retail, healthcare, smart buildings and industrial automation.

“I am a team builder who loves the challenge of vetting, developing, and guiding innovation through the complexities of engineering, IP development, business development, licensing, and sales channel strategies”, says Guylain. “So Innovobot’s unique model as a venture capital provider and a hands-on value creator played a key role in my decision to join the team”. For relaxation, Guylain enjoys renovating, tinkering on his old Land Rover Defender and exploring the BC coast on Ganache, a sloop-rigged sailboat he and his wife have lived aboard for more than 25 years.

COO Fadi Albatal says Guylain is a perfect fit for Innovobot. “We are very happy to welcome Guylain to our family and look forward to working with him to accelerate our growth. We are expanding our business across Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia. The addition of Guylain in Vancouver gives us a dynamic presence in the vibrant business and tech community of the West Coast. His international experience is exactly what we need to propel our IoT Lab and Clean Tech ecosystem.”

Welcome aboard Guylain! We look forward to plotting our course for the future with you.
