About the Event

Join us on January 27 where we will be having a conversation with Isaac Souweine, partner at Real Ventures. We will go over his background, experience as a Product Manager and a VC, exploring the similarities and differences between operating a startup and investing in them.


About the Speaker

Isaac focuses on early-stage investments in Quebec-based companies as part of Real Venture's Orbit strategy. He is also part of the team behind Front Row Ventures, Real’s student fund, and previously served as the GM of FounderFuel. 

Prior to joining Real, he held product leadership roles at Sonder, Frank and Oak, Yahoo and Scholastic. Isaac is an active mentor, speaker, and organizer with a deep commitment to paying it forward. 

Isaac has an MBA from INSEAD and a BA from Columbia in religious studies. A husband and father of two, he thinks Montreal is the perfect place to build a world-class startup ecosystem while raising a family.
