How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I love entrepreneurship and am keen on starting business. I am young, hungry and have had one successful exit already. My passion and skill set lend itself to Sales, Strategy, Operations, Biz Dev, and Management but I look forward to working tirelessly to also contribute to other areas of a business in the early days. I love idea generation, want to make a lot of money, have fun and do it with good people that I aligned with.

As an Advisor

They're my friends
I met David when I was 3 years old, 23 years ago. I went to elementary and high school with him, played on the same hockey team as him growi ... ng up, went attended the same College, and backpacked over 10 countries with him. So, in short, I know David well. I have nothing but the utmost respect for him and his skills. He is hard working, smart, and a is passionate guy. Him and I are constantly discussing business, technology, and entrepreneurial ideas. I currently work as a Strategy and Operations Manager at Groupon and I would hire David on to my team in a second. However, he is more cut out for the entrepreneurial world, and I think whichever partner ends up with him, they are lucky,

David is and always has been the guy with big ideas and an ability to execute. He always does his homework and contributes ideas that are th ... oughtful and slightly outside the box. David is rarely paralysed by indecision and is not afraid to take a chance. He is a leader, strong communicator and a person anyone can count on.

Alex has an uncanny ability to sell and make relationships. He was instrumental in the early successes of WagJag.com and it's evolution as a ... leader in the group buying industry. He was the first person in the world to create a model for CPG companies to participate in this industry. He is a results driven, self starter who can bring humor to any situation.

He can be an incredibly focused and diligent guy. This, coupled with charisma and very strong network is a strong combination.
