The Startup Zone Team
As a startup advisor and mentor for several businesses, Patrick has helped launch and foster several social startups, leading efforts in raising millions in financing.
Attending Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden, the top school in the world for research on Family Business and Entrepreneurship, Patrick conducted research on developing long-standing businesses.
His experience and love for start-ups pull him towards other ventures that bring added value to the Canadian economy through business creation and employment.
Drawing on startup experiences, he’s inspired to enhance the support and training of ambitious entrepreneurs. This has led him to the Startup Zone, a business incubator that helps entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses.
