Full profile of Cedric Jeannot

What do you think is the biggest problem facing your business right now?

We are at a stage where we’re going need additional capital to scale the operations because we currently can’t keep up with demand. But scaling is not really a problem; it’s part of business life.

How optimistic are you about the Canadian economy in the next 12 months? What makes you optimistic/pessimistic?

I’m very optimistic. If there is one place where entrepreneurs are changing industries, it’s Canada. We have the talent base, the spirit and supporting government programs. Entrepreneurial activity is always an indicator of the economy, so I have no doubt the economy is going to get better.
