We have some very exciting news to share!
Our very own Kirk Simpson will be a regular guest blogger for the Business section of Huffington Post Canada. As CEO and co-founder of Wave, Kirk consistently pushes the boundaries of digital media.
Long before YouTube, he launched a startup called AdventureLifestyle.com, which focused on live web-streaming of adventure races. The project was ahead of its time as the market wasn't ready to support this venture, so Kirk altered his path, becoming deeply involved in the evolution and transition from print to online at several major Canadian print media companies.
His second startup was Outdoorsica.com, a community of outdoor adventure enthusiasts with a user-generated knowledge base. After learning some great lessons in the dedication necessary to achieve success, Kirk eventually sold Outdoorsica to an outdoor adventure magazine.
With the experience of two startups under his belt, Kirk knew it was time to launch Wave, alongside co-founder and CTO James Lochrie. He lives in Toronto with his wife and three children, one of whom was born during Wave’s earliest days. Check out Kirk’s first blog, “Should You Fire Your Accountant?” The answer may not be what you think.
