In 2006, Ian Jeffrey left Montreal to join the startup world in Silicon Valley. Three years later, his company “Tiny Pictures” was acquired by Shutterfly. The experiences he gained in San Francisco allowed him to reshape the startup landscape in the city he grew up in. Back in Montreal, he went on to become a venture partner at Real Ventures, co-founded FounderFuel and even co-created MTLinTech. Now he’s the co-founder and CEO of Breathe Life, where they focus on providing innovative technologies to the insurance industry while building people-first company along the way.
Ian Jeffrey also gave a talk at Startupfest 2019 covering the topic of mental health in startups and the importance of building a work-life balance. You can see the slides from his talk here.
