I had the good fortune to work with Peter Monkhouse and Joanna Tivig on a project related to the startup of a not-for-profit institution in Ontario’s postsecondary sector. They have added immense value to the startup initiative. It was a tremendous learning experience for me personally and, I can say comfortably, for the startup team as a whole.
