15+ yrs exp, 10+ as CEO/Exec, leading teams, raising capital, building tech, scaling, investing and advising companies.

Hey there! I'm Aly, a Canadian-based entrepreneur, investor and advisor who has spent over a decade building, investing and advising companies. I've had the opportunity to build both bootstrapped and venture-backed companies, learning a ton along the way!

Throughout my journey, helping people grow has been the most rewarding aspect of my career, and I'd like to extend my experience to a broader audience. If we have the chance to meet, I promise to do my best to provide you with incredible impact and dedication to your success.

A bit about my journey...

While I started as a kinesiology and psychology major, I quickly realized that the clinical world wasn't my calling. Nonetheless, my desire to help people led me to a career in banking, on both retail innovation teams at a top-3 Canadian bank. During my tenure in banking, I co-founded a not-for-profit tech accelerator, a first of its kind at the time, blended social impact, private/public capital, and startup programming to reinvent libraries as innovation hubs in local communities.

After seven years in banking, I left to join a startup as the first employee. We built a D2C insurance marketplace, which was acquired early in our journey. I then helped grow the company who acquired us to $100M+ in revenues before departing in 2016 to launch Finaeo, a venture-backed next-generation digital ecosystem for the life insurance industry. I've served as its CEO for the past seven years. My journey has been unique, operating through COVID, expanding a business across borders, raising capital, hiring/firing, and much more.

Apart from business, I'm a proud father of two (a girl and a boy), an avid basketball player/coach, and a sneakerhead. You can often find me playing chess in the park while sporting my favourite Jordans, of course!

It's a pure joy working with Aly!  Every conversation had so much depth and left me thinking for good! :D Very practical tactics on how to approach problems especially when you're just starting out on an entrepreneurial journey. I would like to thank him so much for his encouragement and kindly sharing his lessons with me and sometimes this is all we need to hear a story and understand we're not alone on our journeys and we're really all in the same place. I'm happy we made it work despite the 11 time zones haha I strongly recommend Aly as a mentor and will come back.

I would honestly recommend Aly, he’s very knowledgeable when it comes to start up, he’s very relatable and so humble. He’s everything you would want in a mentored, someone who sentimental understanding, but also gives you the brutal honesty of life and he doesn’t sugar coat things. He’s helped shape my view of business and definitely gave me a new and better perspective so if you were to ask me I would say give him a chance you won’t regret it.

I can sincerely confess that Aly is truly an exceptional mentor and it's unlikely to find such a good mentor again. Even though Aly is 2 years younger than me, he has vast amounts of experience in writing decks, going to market, scaling businesses, and probably more. He communicates in a direct, open, but in a respectable manner that motivates to get the best out of yourself. Having gone through a couple of mentors here on Mentorcruise, I can confidently say that Aly is a true precious diamond amongst them.
