Q1: Tell us about your business?
Flexday gives freelancers and remote workers casual, productive workspaces throughout the city with a guaranteed seat, fast wifi, power within reach and unlimited coffee and tea membership that starts at $9 per month.
We make this possible by working with great, local restaurants that open their doors to our members in their downtime and earn future customers in the process. Today, we have 5000 members who work in 25 locations throughout Toronto.
Q2: What made you decide to become a business owner?
I love building businesses. Flexday is my seventh. I become very focused when a big, new opportunity arrives. Becoming a business owner is the fastest way to create the change that you want to see in this world.
I love working with passionate, smart people that want to get out of the stands and into the game.
