Vicky Au
We worked together  •  Consultant, The Boston Consulting Group. Previously Associate, The Boston Consulting Group. University of Waterloo grad.
I worked with Mike when we sat on the inaugural board of directors together for the accounting and finance student association. I loved sitt ... ing on the Board with Mike. He's a smart and funny guy who is very grounded and has a great sense of responsibility. I've watched Mike grow over the years as an advisor and close friend. He made the switch into investment banking after months of hard work and perseverance. It was by no means an easy path, but Mike's drive, intelligence and ability to spot opportunity has always helped him get where he wants to go. I strongly believe that all these qualities will make Mike succeed in whatever he decides to pursue in the future (including starting his own business). I would pick Mike to be on my team any day of the week for practically anything!

They're my school  •  Investment Banking Analyst, TD Securities. Previously Staff Accountant, KPMG LLP. University of Waterloo grad.
Mike is extremely bright and hard working, two qualities that compliment his entrepreneurial spirit. When we worked on various projects duri ... ng university, he often exhibited abilities to isolate the issue and find the most efficient solution. This was perhaps a product of his big picture perspective, which made him a nature leader in our team. I strongly believe that any team would be lucky to have Mike's contribution.
Ian Gutwinski
We worked together  •  Associate, Onex Corporation. Previously Investment Banking Analyst, CIBC World Markets. University of Waterloo grad.
Michael possesses the rare combination of being creative and passionate about the projects he undertakes, while commanding a strong technica ... l skill set that keeps his dreams well grounded in reality. Michael is an extremely effective communicator and a great team player - he'd be a strong addition to any team.
Connor Kingston, CPA, CA
They're my school  •  Associate, Ernst & Young Orenda Corporate Finance. Previously Analyst, Ernst & Young Orenda Corporate Finance. University of Waterloo grad.
Has a passion for what he believes in.
Cindy Chan
They're my school  •  Senior Financial Analyst, Financial Planning & Analysis, Softchoice. Previously Senior Associate, Assurance, KPMG Canada.
I’ve worked with Mike both in student governance groups and in university. Mike is one of the most naturally intelligent people I know – ... he knows how to maximize results with minimal effort. He’s all about effectiveness in execution and I’m positive that he’ll be an asset to the start-ups he’s advising with his no-BS, straight-to-the-point advice that will get founders thinking about not only the next steps but the next five. Coming from investment banking, he’s a whiz with numbers and knows how to make a killer deck. He has a deep understanding of value drivers in companies and is really passionate about the world of tech and entrepreneurship. But more than any of these skillsets, I look forward to watching Mike instill a culture of hustling in the next generation of entrepreneurs – one that encourages them to take risks, make meaningful connections, and to learn to connect the dots to the bigger picture with the least amount of lines possible.

Chris Wood, CPA, CA, MMPA
We worked together  •  Senior Manager, National / Global Accounting Consulting Services, PwC. Previously Senior Associate, Financial Risk Management, PwC.
Michael is highly intelligent, curious and driven, so I have no doubt he'll persevere at anything he puts his mind to.
