Perhaps the definition of “serial entrepreneur” (founding his first startup at the age of 16), LP is the co-founder and CEO of travel startup Busbud. His greatest passion is leading teams that create big impact, solve big problems and challenge the status-quo – a passion that drove him and the Busbud team to land a $9M Series A round in July 2014. Previously, he has worked in Silicon Valley, earned a degree from Harvard, and spoke at TedX.
Based in Montreal, LP has co-founded and championed several entrepreneurial initiatives including Entrepreneurs Anonymous, Startup Open House and GeoDonation. In addition to his active mentorship role with The Next 36, he is an avid writer, angel investor, serves as the co-director of Founder Institute Montreal, and mentors ventures at FounderFuel and Startup Weekend. Not surprisingly, LP has an endless list of awards and accolades celebrating his incredible entrepreneurial success.
