President and CEO
COMPANY: Tutela Technologies Ltd.
"Two-and-a-half years later, Tutela Technologies has 10 employees and more than $1 million in funding"
It all happened fast for Hunter MacDonald. He was finishing his undergrad in mechanical engineering at McGill University when he started volunteering with Ottawa-based venture capitalists Wesley Clover International Corp. After about six months he got a call from the firm one Friday and was told that if he could be in Victoria by Monday, he could start a company with its backing, under the tutelage of Ted Darcie in the Engineering Entrepreneurship@UVic program. He packed his bags and upon arrival launched a project aimed at helping wireless service providers monitor their networks’ performance. Two-and-a-half years later, Tutela Technologies has 10 employees and more than $1 million in funding. –David Godsall
