Ian is General Manager of FounderFuel, the Montreal based startup accelerator, and Venture Partner at Real Ventures.
Originally from Montreal, Ian moved to Silicon Valley in 2006 to help launch Radar, the first mobile photo and video sharing social network, as the VP of Marketing at Tiny Pictures.
Following the acquisition of Tiny Pictures by Shutterfly, Ian became Director of Marketing of the mobile and social media team. There he launched Wink, a mobile service that lets users create photobooth-style prints directly from their iPhone.
Ian started his career in 2002 as half of the two-man team behind Nomad, the now defunct Street Intelligence Agency of Cossette Communications. Specialized in word-of-mouth marketing and insight generation, Nike, Coca-Cola and McDonald’s were among Nomad's major clients.
Today Ian is happy to be back in Montreal with his wife and child.
