Co-Founder & CEO at Clearco
Ferociously committed to helping entrepreneurs around the world. Believer that the world's toughest challenges can be only solved by entrepreneurs. Committed especially to helping the founders who didn’t go to the right schools or grow up in the right families or look like everyone else. Hustle should always matter more than pedigree. Co-founded and led Clearco (formerly Clearbanc) to become the world’s largest e-commerce investor. We’ve invested in over $3.2B in over 7,000 different companies across 10 countries. We’ve backed 25x more women than the VC industry average and backed founders in all 50 states in America by using AI to make our investment decisions and not humans. We pioneered the revenue share capital structure for ad spend and inventory that has been copied (to the enormous benefit of founders!) around the world. We were Softbank’s first Canadian investment at a near $2B valuation launching Clearco into unicorn status. Investor on CBC’s Dragons’ Den (Canada’s Shark Tank) for over 6 seasons with dozens of angel investments including Endy (acquired by Sleep Country for $89M), TruLocal (acquired by Emerge for $17M), RVezy, Thras.io, Haus, Cart.com, Sheetex, Signos, Mastermind, Inkbox, TruFan, Lillia, Lucky Iron Fish, Accompany.io, Swyft and Tokens.com. Voted Angel Investor of the Year in Canada. Committed to becoming a better leader myself. I’m constantly pushing myself out of my comfort zone and scared all the time. I’ve learned it’s never easy to lead. Loves: Cabernet, Alicia Keys, the color purple, water sports, sailing, booking airline tickets 2 hours before takeoff.
