IYRS + Flux Marine: A Prototyping Partnership to Improve Ocean Health

This presentation will focus on the collaboration between IYRS School of Technology & Trades and Flux Marine during the pandemic.  RI marine innovator, Flux Marine, engaged IYRS to help prototype its cutting edge electric outboard motor design in their campus prototyping lab when the world was shut down. Working together to change the boating industry with the goal of improving ocean health? Oh yes we are. Learn more about their partnership at this event.

Jonathan Lord is a cofounder and CTO of Flux Marine, a Rhode Island based startup that is advancing marine electrification technology to deliver the world’s best boating experiences.
