Start Up. Scale up. We market tech.
Entrepreneurs are our addiction. Working with people with the vision to create something, and challenge the status quo. Our hearts are here first.
We love to build great brands - where people are brave, unique and human from the beginning. In our experience, this is what gets noticed.
Tech allures us. Maybe because it is a hub of creative inventors (some call them geeks), or maybe because we love to root for underdogs.
Material Insight was founded in 2003 as the “where you go to grow” choice for technology ventures seeking to go-to-market and succeed. We are proud to have supported the growth of more than 50+ tech ventures in Western Canada. Learn more about our impact.
Our Network »
We draw from a network of tech-accredited talent for Material Insight projects. Our crew includes many independent contractors because as entrepreneurs they understand other business creators. At the helm are two partners.
