Meet dealcloser | Amir tackled his own problem and built a solution for his peers in corporate law

dealcloser was founded in typical startup fashion: a personal problem sparked an idea, which led to a set of terrible user interface mockups on Power Point and an initial investment that just covered the cost of building a prototype.

Like most startups, it took a while to hammer out a minimum viable product, but a solid product market fit kept investors and customers interested. Now, dealcloser is being used in law firms in 9 cities in North America, in 5 states and provinces, in 2 countries around the world.

MEMBER UPDATE: EDMONTON’S POPPY BARLEY OPENS FLAGSHIP STORE AT SOUTHGATE CENTRE

Our friends at Poppy Barley announced big news today! 1000 square feet of news with the opening of a flagship location at Southgate Centre in August 2017.

Congratulations to the incredibly hardworking team at Poppy Barley as they embark on an exciting new journey (and welcome 12 new members to the PB family!). Over the past five years, we assembled desks together as we moved into the Mercer Warehouse, you measured our feet in Work Space 1 for some of the first orders of boots, and welcomed hundreds of eager Poppy Barley customers at sample sales where lineups snaked down the stairwell and out onto 104th Street. 

It's an honor to share in so many milestones with you & we look forward to much more to come.
