He cut his initial teeth in the corporate world focusing on marketing and strategy - first at Cority and then at Bell Mobility - but later bootstrapped, grew, and sold the recruitment platform Vestiigo.com.
Inspired by the world of startups, he went on to work with a number of Silicon Valley firms - including Nextdoor and Tilt - with a focus on international growth and expansion.
Tim is a graduate of the University of Toronto’s Munk School for Global Affairs, where he earned his undergraduate degree in International Relations and History. He received his Master’s degree in Business from Grenoble École de Management in France.
