STARTUPS & INVESTORS
As an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Peel region’s leading technology incubator, RIC Centre, Paul meets with dozens of clients and helps them scale up, commercialize, and become a success in the market while surveying all the possibilities through a business and technological lens.
Here's what some of our entrepreneurs, startups, and investors have to say
Through his work, Paul noticed the problems and challenges surrounding the information technology component of entrepreneurial startups. When trying to reach out to an audience through platforms such as social media, it is important not to confuse the target market with one’s ideals. Paul puts it quite plainly: “I am not my Target Market.” The idea is to look towards the market, and cater to them. Paul also encourages his clients to converse with customers right away for a diverse range of opinions.
“The most exciting things aren’t just technologies themselves,” explains Paul. “For all the problems in the world, you can use solutions that are ICT enabled.”
“Companies with great ideas get their product commercialized,” says Paul. “It’s important to create value, but it is also important to capture that value.” With that philosophy, Paul and his mentees figure out how to effectively use their time to reach their goals.
