Wayne Purboo

September 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Come listen to the startup journey of Wayne Purboo.
But have you heard about this incredible human?

Wayne Purboo started out as a technologist, but morphed into an entrepreneur. The founder, president and CEO of Toronto-based QuickPlay Media Inc. is now leading his company through a series of transformations. You may not recognize QuickPlay, but it’s lurking behind the scenes of a cellphone near you. However, an important note is that Wayne decided to sell Quickplay to AT&T last year for $330M. WOW.

In layman’s terms, the company provides software that enables telecommunications company customers to watch short video clips on their mobile devices. In three short years, Purboo has taken a company from scratch to revenues approaching the $10-million market, signed up major carriers Telus, Bell Mobility and Rogers, and linked users to major broadcasters such as CBC, MTV, ESPN and CHUM Television.

Join us for an inspiring evening of stories, laughs and adventures. There will be delicious food available as well.

We hope to see you there!
