About Paul

Paul Slaby likes to talk about his educational background as consisting of two degrees: a Ph.D. in technology and MBA from the School of Hard Knocks.

After a brief stint at Carleton University he spent the formative first decade of his professional life at BNR and Nortel Networks in various R&D and management functions.  Having been bitten by the infamous “entrepreneurial seizure”, he got subsequently involved in founding and running several high-tech ventures such as MicroSemiX, ATMOS, VoIPshield Systems, Kaben Wireless Silicon, and Yariba Tech.

As a founder, hired-gun CEO and an angel investor, he has experienced it all: successful exits, bitter failures and walking-wounded ventures. He is a keen student of the art of high-tech start-up and loves to share his experience. In spare time he is an adventure travel enthusiast and an avid sailor.
