Christian Schenk, Founder & Advisor

Executive | Strategist | Visionary | Innovator | Board Member | Public Speaker | Entrepreneur

As an active member of many association both in the wireless and transportation verticals, I have the benefit of interacting with some of the worlds most influential executives from worldwide technology leaders such as Google, Yahoo, Samsung, Motorola, LinkedIn, Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. My experience and influence has landed me a position on many boards including; Samsung, Motorola and CTIA (The Wireless Association). My goal is to bring innovation and forward thinking solutions to all aspects of business. My strengths are in product strategy, design, execution and delivery, including channel marketing and direct sales. Our team or professionals will ensure success and we guarantee our work and commitments.  

RESULTS are how we measure ourselves.

Christian's Background

The fundamentals of business came to me at an early age. By eighteen, I had successfully launched, built and sold my first business. The next five years would see the success of two more technology companies that were eventually acquired and now owned by a world leader in transportation technology. At the age of 26 I built one of Canada's fastest growing companies then took it public with gross revenues of more than $87M. 

I am fortunate for the experiences I've had and the guidance I've been given. Today I invest in several start-up tech companies and provide consulting and strategy planning for some of the largest technology firms in the country.
