CBC Dragon and Co-Founder of Lavalife
Bruce Croxon is one of the newest investors on the hit CBC series Dragons’ Den and a co-founder of Lavalife.com. He draws his business enthusiasm from venturing off the beaten path and approaching potential opportunities from unique angles.
Bruce believes innovation and risk-taking go hand in hand. In order for an organization to continuously innovate and succeed, they must be willing to take calculated risks, make mistakes and most importantly learn from them. Find out how continuous innovation and collaboration built Lavalife into a 100 million dollar company. The aim isn’t perfection, it’s to be right more than you’re wrong and to capitalize on these small, incremental gains that over time lead to breakthrough results.
