About

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

Hello there! I'm Aly, a Canadian entrepreneur who has spent the past decade at the intersection of financial services and technology, having worked at large corporations, private mid-sized companies, tech startups.

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 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.

From the moment I first spoke with Aly, I recognized him as my mentor. It was impressive how he took my call at short notice, especially over the weekend. We discovered many similarities between us, making it effortless for him to grasp my goals and ambitions. By the end of our conversation, the adage “Never take advice from someone you wouldn't want to switch places with” resonated with me, and I was certain that I aspired to follow a path similar to Aly's.
