FINDING PURPOSE IN GIVING BACK TO THE WORLD
"HUSTLING IS SACRIFICING THE PRESENT FOR A BETTER FUTURE"
Lennie had humble beginnings growing up with his grand-parents in a small apartment in Montreal but was able to always find purpose in bringing value to his entourage. He often says that this mentality got him to where he is today: “the hunger to contribute”. Now, Lennie is the CEO & Founder of Sofdesk, a leading software company helping to scale solar energy and roofing projects. Being a serial & ambitious entrepreneur wanting to overcome big challenges, he drove across North America to sell his first solar product which got him to raise millions of dollars from some of the top Venture Capital firms on the Planet. Being a talented speaker/performer, Lennie offers his time to multiple Startup Events, fights for righteous causes through his "Clean Out Your Closet" initiative and is passionate about helping teenagers going through difficult situations. Lennie is also a 2018 & 2019 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, 2018 Mercuriades Finalist, 2018 LinkedIn Award Winner and was featured in multiple publications including Yahoo, Les Affaires, Green Tech Media, Startup Grind, Startup Fest, Techno Montreal and many others.
Clean Out Your Closet Movement
Helping Local Shelters
Lennie started the Clean out your Closet initiative, which is driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place. The mission is focused on organizing clothing drives periodically for the shelters that are the most in need in a given season. Our decision making process on which shelter to support is based on data analytics and general outcome. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact within our community.
