Tech titan Michele Romanow is an engineer and serial entrepreneur who started three companies before her 28th birthday. Her business savvy, drive, and tenacity led her to become the youngest entrepreneur ever to star as a “Dragon” on CBC’s hit show Dragons’ Den. Now in its 13th season, the show sees aspiring Canadian entrepreneurs pitch business and investment ideas to a panel of venture capitalists, or “Dragons”. Michele joined the team in the show’s tenth season, after starring in its web series, Next Gen Den, a launching pad for young entrepreneurs.
The co-founder of Buytopia.ca, Snap By Groupon, and Clearbanc, an online financial service, Michele was named one of the “100 Most Powerful in Canada” by WXN and one of the Top 20 Most Disruptive “Millennials on a Mission” by Forbes — the only Canadian to make the list. She has also been featured and profiled in top media publications including Forbes, Canadian Business, The New York Times, Inc. Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Chatelaine, and more.
Through her work, and her time as a “Dragon”, Michele has become renowned for her youthful energy, enthusiasm, and entrepreneurial savvy, and continues to serve as an inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs, and particularly, women in business, everywhere.
