Kirk Simpson – Co-founder and CEO of Wave
Kirk (@tksimpson) launched Wave in November 2010 with co-founder James Lochrie, and as CEO has since led the company to becoming one of Canadaâ€™s most significant startups, with recognition from Deloitte, CIX, TechCrunch, Techvibes and many more. Under Kirkâ€™s leadership, Wave has reached more than 1.3 million registered users, raised over $35 million in venture funding from top VCs in Silicon Valley, Boston and Toronto, and grown to a company of 70 team members. As a previous entrepreneur, Kirk had experienced the pain of back-office tasks like accounting, which he set to solving by creating Wave. Kirkâ€™s earlier ventures, both in online technologies, include a pre-YouTube streaming video service for high-end adventure events around the world, and an online community for outdoor adventure enthusiasts, which he sold to an outdoors magazine in 2010.
