In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by founding director of GaardTech Steen Bisgaard, who will unpack how its two-dimensional and three-dimensional technologies are being utilised in defence industry training to ensure a higher success rate on the battlefield.
Bisgaard will share how through his history in the defence force he was able to identify a gap in the market that lead to the development of GaardTech, and why he believed that self-funding the company was the best way to maintain integrity across its products.
Being a relatively new company, Bisgaard will share how GaardTech plans to market its product, the future lines that it plans to develop and why it is choosing to outsource the creation of its products for the time being. He will also explain the rationale behind why the company is hoping to attract a particular type of staff member to join the team, who that is and how that will impact GaardTech going forward.
Enjoy the podcast,
