|Greg Beckett CIM, FCSI||Founder, Director Of Research|
At age thirteen, Greg invented the auto reverse cassette deck. In 1983 he participated in the development, production and marketing of the world’s first microwave popcorn bag. This invention was the “secret” in General Mill’s Pop Secret brand of popcorn. In 1987 he assisted in the sale of this business which sold for $24,000,000. Subsequently Greg co-founded and was the President of Toronto Venture Exchange listed Beckett Technologies Corp., a microwave food packaging company, which had a market capitalization of $198 million. It was at Beckett Technologies where he was granted thirteen U.S. patents for microwave food packaging.
For recreation, Greg enjoys competing in triathlons as well as camping, and snowboarding.

|Justin brings over 20 years of tenure in the Canadian capital markets, highlighted by closeto 10 years of corporate strategy and business development work with Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange. Throughout his career Justin has consulted with and advised numerous public company executives, and in doing so, has cultivated a strong advisory ecosystem which he regularly leverages for the benefit of his clients. His sectors of expertise include mining, real estate, technology, life sciences and financial services.

When Justin isn’t in the office or on the road with one of his clients, you’ll probably find him either on the golf course (still trying to “honestly” break 100), or at the hockey rink or soccer pitch watching his twin girls try their hardest to “win” scholarships to one of North America’s finest schools – fingers crossed.
