Kamil Szybalski
Product & Growth Leader. 2x Founder.
I'm a driven entrepreneur and product leader. I have over 9 years of experience in both consumer and enterprise technology, product development and marketing. I have successfully helped companies, including my own, move from concept to scale. I bring real passion and experience, genuine creativity and a consistent approach.

I care deeply about user experiences, a relentless focus on the customer and sustainable data-driven growth. I believe in experimentation and that there is always a better way to improve a process or solve a problem. I hold that focus means saying no and advocate that roadmaps are evidence of strategy and not lists of features.

I grew up in Toronto, Canada. After completing a combined HBA in Philosophy and Political Science at McMaster University, I had intended to attend law school but ultimately chose not to.

Instead, I built a daily deal startup and grew it to six figure revenues within 8 months. I then sold that startup to Offeron Media Inc and moved to Beautiful Vancouver, BC to continue building new products with the team.
