David is a venture capital investor with capitalist at iNovia Capital with a focus on IT investment opportunities. iNovia has $275M under management across three seed and early-stage funds.
I love working with people but never tell them what they want to hear, rather I tell them what I think and how I can help. Entrepreneurship is part of my DNA and so is helping others in their quest to grow their businesses. Areas of expertise include; funding, marketing, mobile, e-commerce and payments. I learnt early on the meaning of lean start-up while at NetCorp when I had to get large customer validation for a disruptive telecom technology for which I later raised $15 million to grow. Thereafter, while while at Pivotal Payments, an emerging payment processor, I experienced what creating traction was all about when he helped the company grow from a few to over 60,000 customers, 400 employees and $150 million in recurring revenue. After which I was named president of Callio Technologies whose intellectual property was later acquired by Bell Canada.
I have a Bachelor of Commerce from John Molson School of Business in Montreal and won entrepreneur of the year in the Queen’s University entrepreneurship competition.
