About this event

Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey. The right business partners can accelerate their business by sharing the heavy lifting and complimenting each others talents.

On September 26th, join us and other startup leaders for a discussion about how successful partners grow their businesses. This includes a married couple who have opened up six offices around the world for their marketing company and two friends who left their successful legal careers to launch a software startup to change how people find legal help! And we kick the night off with someone with advice on how to protect yourself if your romantic partnership does not work...


Feature Speakers: Hayden and Jessica Power (Power Surge Marketing): Hayden and Jessica are a married power couple who have built a 7-figure/yr marketing agency. Hayden, the CEO, is the youngest president's club recipient for a multi-billion dollar telecom company turned thrill-seeking entrepreneur. Jessica, COO, is an accomplished swimmer who at one time was less than a second shy of qualifying for the 2012 Olympic trials. These days she's called the Culture Queen by their 19 person team. Hear more of story their story and learn the truth about mixing business and pleasure.

Feature Speakers: Brett Colvin and Steven Bodi (Goodlawyer Inc.): Brett and Steve were two lawyers who couldn’t help but notice that the existing approach to finding lawyers (and finding clients) was counter intuitive and inefficient. So they launched their software startup: Goodlawyer, Canada's first managed marketplace that helps connect clients with vetted, reviewed lawyers in a simple and transparent way - all online. Since then they have built out their core team and launched their first commercial product: www.goodlawyer.ca. Based on their success with early adopters they are beginning to expand into new markets. Hear about how they worked together to support leaving their corporate law jobs and then jump head first into the startup world! 

Feature Organization - Uncontested Solutions: Warren Buffet has said that the most important financial decision you can make is choosing who your spouse is. Stephanie Lamont of Uncontested Solutions provide an alternative services for couples who wish to protect their finances as they enter or leave a romantic relationship. Hear about cohabitation agreements, common law agreements, prenuptial agreements and divorce best practices.
