Hi there! I’m Jay Vasantharajah, Toronto-based entrepreneur and investor.
This is my personal blog where I share my experiences building businesses, making investments, managing personal finances and traveling the world.
Subscribe below, and expect to get a couple emails a month with some free, valuable and actionable content.
A Bit About My Story
I started my career off at Deloitte as a consultant in their downtown Toronto office. It wasn’t long before I left the corporate world to launch my first business, a PPC agency. My agency managed millions of dollars of ad spend for large clients and won several awards.
I used the profits from the PPC agency to start an eCommerce business, which has grown into a 7-figure a year business.
I’ve reinvested cashflows from my businesses into private multi-family real estate in the Toronto area, public equities and tech start-ups.
Today, I am focused on my investment firm, Bloom Venture Partners, making venture investments in and acquiring great software businesses.
