Gil Silberstein
Co-founder & CEO
Heading into university, Gil Silberstein, HBA '05, had a simple plan. Get to business school, find a business partner, and start a new venture.

From the moment the new class of HBA 1 students were seated in alphabetical order, things started falling into place. Seated right next to Silberstein, was Eric Silber, HBA '05, who also had an interest in entrepreneurship.

Few business partners meet in such serendipitous circumstances. Later the research project turned startup the pair bootstrapped after graduating from the Ivey Business School.
