Speakers: Ghassan Halazon

Ghassan Halazon is the CEO at TeamBuy.ca, Canada’s first and largest independent team-buying website. The TeamBuy concept revolves around introducing businesses to a large number of new customers through the power of group buying.

After a year and a half, TeamBuy currently has a team of 75+ employees, and is operational in 13 cities. The Company is approaching a million members and recently made the top #300 websites on Alexa Canada, making it one of the fastest growing companies in the country. TeamBuy took to the national stage when Ghassan and his partners appeared on the Dragons’ Den, a popular Reality TV show on CBC in front of 2 million viewers. TeamBuy is partly funded by a prominent European technology and social commerce investor.

Prior to his role with TeamBuy, Ghassan was an Investment Banking associate at Citigroup (New York). It wasn’t fun. He received his MBA from Georgetown (Washington D.C.), and his undergraduate degree in finance and entrepreneurship from McGill (Montreal). Ghassan was born and raised in Amman, Jordan.
