Key Accomplishments

I spent the last two years working at Bain as a consultant in various industries (healthcare, mining, financial services, tech) and functional areas (innovation, cost reduction, channel management, M&A).

Prior to that I was completing my BComm at the University of British Columbia. Over the course of my degree I participated in several internships.

I spent four months sourcing and conducting diligence on private equity deals for Lynx Equity, a Toronto-based fund focused on Succession style small business investments.

I spent two months at Grameen bank, a micro-credit institution in Bangladesh, authoring an annual report to assess the performance of a $4.5M loan portfolio that reached over 6,000 Kosovan borrowers.

I volunteered for Enterprize, an student run entrepreneurship conference and business plan competition, leading a team of five to raise $200K in sponsorship.

Isaac Strang
They're my friends
Isaac has already launched several companies and is an experienced entrepreneur. Having teamed up with Isaac for a Hackathon last year I can ... say that he combines great ideas with awesome leadership and execution. There are few people I would want to work with on a startup but Isaac is definitely one of them.
