Growing Your Business the Octopz Way

by Rob Lewis

R.I.C. Centre's speaker series of 10 consecutive monthly breakfast events gets underway on September 16th with How to Create a Successful Business Model at the University of Toronto Mississauga Faculty Club. The session runs from 7:30 am to 10 am and includes a great line-up of guest speakers: Andrew Maxwell of the University of Toronto Missisauga, John Cook - Managing Partner of Investeco Capital and Ron Mckenzie - CEO of Octopz.

If you follow the Web 2.0 space in Canada, then you know all about Octopz thanks to a series of awards they have strung together in 2008 - Top Startup at CIX, KPMG Web 2.0 PICK 20, Branham Top 25 IT Up and Comers, and IDC's 10 Canadian Web 2.0 Companies to Watch to name a few. So, Octopz's McKenzie should know a thing or two about creating a successful business model.

R.I.C. Centre (Research, Innovation, Commercialization) is a non-profit organization that provides business and technical services to small and medium enterprises to commercialize their innovation. R.I.C.’s interests reside in the aerospace, advanced manufacturing and life sciences sectors.
