  • Adam is a unique professional. While many clients struggle with business and technology alignment, he has been a reliable source of clarity for them. Time and again his leadership has made valuable investments of challenging situations, which makes him an extremely valuable source of insight. He is a true partner in the jobs involved.

    - Marc Contois, President, Creative-Workshop.com
  • Adam has a very pragmatic view of helping customers adopt new techniques and achieve their goals. His approach has always impressed me as it is calm and methodical while leading us to a new capability. I believe this comes from his alternating university degree work with practical work experience to develop his own skills in the strongest way possible. I look forward to doing more business with Adam in the future.

Entrepreneurship for Engineers

It was an absolute treat to deliver this lecture on Business Models and Lean Startups with uOttawa Engineers and Computer Scientists!

This (abridged) video covers the vital entrepreneurship topics for our times: business model generation, lean startup methodology, customer development, competition and the pitch. Maybe next time, we will tackle distribution on a deeper level, along with the topic of equity.

The tools of entrepreneurship instill our engineers with a unique and important capability: personally, it prevents stagnation and promotes growth ; professionally, we depend on innovation for our future.
