Today, we are very honoured to be named one of the five power couples in Canadian Tech by the Globe And Mail, who are “brought together by their mutual fondness for engineering, elevator pitches and all-night brainstorming sessions.” Very happy that our friends are on the list too.
Looking at our portfolio companies, Wattpad and other amazing companies in Toronto, there are other power couples who are doing great things in Canadian Tech as well. To name a few – John Philip Green (CEO, CareGuide) and Malgosia Green (CPO, Tophat), and Melissa Nightingale (Head of Creator, Wattpad) and Johnathan Nightingale (CPO, Hubba), Prakash Chand (CEO, AskTheDoctor) and Neha Khera (Venture Partner, 500 Startups Canada), Carl Mercier and Tami Zuckerman (Co-Founders, VarageSale). I am sure I am missing a few. My apology for any omissions.
I believe these couples certainly would agree with me that “two are better than one”. Having worked with Allen in tech since we graduated from school, we grew together, weathered the tech bubble burst together, dived into entrepreneurship together and raising a family together.
It has not been an easy journey, but certainly is an exciting, fulfilling and a loving one.
Cheers to all the tech couples in the world!
